Inferno

A distributed operating system from Vita Nuova Holdings Limited (www.vitanuova.com) that is a spin-off of the Plan 9 system developed at Bell Labs. Inferno uses fewer resources than Plan 9 and includes its own virtual machine (Dis) and concurrent programming language (Limbo). Inferno can also run on top of other operating systems, including Windows, Unix and Plan 9. See Plan 9 and distributed operating system.
