MINIX is a family of Unix-POSIX compliant, small, microkernel operating systems (OSs). All versions include source code. MINIX has a strong presence in computer education. MINIX 1 originated to teach college level computer science. MINIX 1 and 2 were used only for education, and by hobbyists. MINIX 1 had a more restrictive license. MINIX 2 and 3 are free, open source, with a BSD-like license. MINIX 3 is the first version intended for more than education. It is optimized for reliability: it is flexible, secure, and self-healing, it keeps running even during software faults; almost everything, including drivers, runs in user space. Over 400 programs are ported to it. MINIX Unix Operating Systems Software Computers.

- Minix-vmd - Minix-vmd is a computer operating system which was created from MINIX, a Unix-like microkernel, and added some features such as virtual memory and X Window System support. It is free and open source software.
- MINIX 3 - MINIX 3 is a project to create a small, high availability, high functioning Unix-like operating system. It is published under a BSD license and is a successor project to the earlier versions, MINIX 1 and 2.
