I am new with Erlang, but I think it is really great. As someoned
said here before, its foremost plus is that it is used successfully in
To my question: Erlang might be a very good candidate to have a
whole operating system based on. Maybe not a general purpose
one, but for custom purposes. Is there anyone working or thinking
about that? I have seen references to ExoKernel, but that is not
exactly what I have in mind (not the way MIT's implementation
looks like today)
An operating system integrated with the Erlang run-time, could it
be done? Would it be worth the work, compared to for example the
VxWorks port? I think it might be interesting from at least an
academic point of view...
Any comments are welcome. Thanks.
