GNU Lightning is a library that generates assembly language code at run time. It is very fast, making it ideal for Just-In-Time compilers, and it abstracts over the target CPU, as it exposes to the clients a standardized RISC instruction set (inspired by the MIPS and SPARC chips).
Shilosh OS provides a secure and stable operating system based on a highly modified Linux kernel, with its own package system similar to BSD's "ports", BSD Init scripts. Compatible with x86 and Power PC, it is also 99% compatible with Windows 9x. It is easy to use and includes complete documentation in many languages.
