The developers of the MINIX 3 operating system (OS) believe that a computer should work like a television set. You should be able to purchase one, turn it on, and have it work flawlessly for the next ten years [6]. MINIX 3 is a free and open-source microkernel-based operating system. MINIX 3 is still in development, but it is capable of running on x86 and ARM processor architectures. Such processors can be found in computers such as embedded systems, mobile phones, and laptop computers. As a… Expand
