Minix 3.0 released

OSNews story on the release of Minix 3.0.

This is the OS that was given away free as a teaching tool with a text book that many have studied during their uni careers. It has now grown up to become a Real OS, targeting the embedded market.

In terms of OS history, Minix is considered the predecessor to Linux, with Linus learning both from Minix and the associated book.
