The Objex Project (like the GNU Project) aims to develop a complete operating system composed of free and open source software. In contrast to the GNU Project, it aims to build a modern system that brings together all the recent advances in computer science, instead of a Unix-like system. "A complete system" means that it will include the kernel, a full suite of developers tools, user utilities, and a graphical user interface. It is based on OSKit, a framework and a set of utilities, drivers, and program code intended for operating system creation.
