- Wikipedia: Xinu Is Not Unix, is an operating system for embedded systems, originally developed by Douglas Comer for educational use at Purdue University in the 1980s. The name is both recursive, and is Unix spelled backwards. It has been ported to many hardware platforms, including the DEC PDP-11 and VAX systems, Sun-2 and Sun-3 workstations, Intel x86, PowerPC G3 and MIPS. Xinu was also used for some models of Lexmark printers.

Name is the reverse of Unix. Xinu. Small, elegant, multitasking OS with concurrent processing, message passing, ports, semaphores, memory management, buffer pools, uniform device I/O, shell, Tcl, TCP/IP. Begun as means to teach OS design concepts, now used by many education institutions; some embedded system makers have ported it to their hardware: Intel 80960, 8096; Motorola 680x0.
