ManRiX: ManRiX OS
is open source microkernel based operating system with POSIX complience.ManRiX
OS is written totally from scratch using C and Assembly language.
This project is started by two students of Nepal college of Inforamtion
Technology (affiliated to Pokhara University) at the beginning
of 2003. This project has now an aim of creating full fledged
operating system. This project is distributed with GPL. ManRiX

ManRiX works on the concept of client and server based architecture.
The focus of this paper is to give overview how the ManRiX is
