 [[en:​about|osFree]] is a [[wp>​FOSS|Free Open Source software]] operating system development project, aiming to replace eventually all [[en:​os_2|OS/​2]] subsystems with Open source analogues. It aims for [[wp>​OS/​2]] Warp 4 (Merlin) as a base compatibility system, which does not mean that we will not support features of newer (OS/2 Warp Server for e-business, [[wp>​eComStation]] and [[wp>​ArcaOS]]) [[wp>​OS/​2]] versions. This includes rewriting not only user-level code but the [[en:​os_2|OS/​2]] kernel too. [[en:​about|osFree]] is a [[wp>​FOSS|Free Open Source software]] operating system development project, aiming to replace eventually all [[en:​os_2|OS/​2]] subsystems with Open source analogues.

-We're collecting existing code for [[wp>​OS/​2]] subsystems for years. Also we are developing our own bootloader named [[en:​freeldr|FreeLdr]] and OS/2 personality for [[wp>​L4_microkernel_family|L4]] microkernel,​ i.e. a number of servers, implementing the Control Program (OS/2 kernel) Interface functionality in userspace. See [[en:​docs:​general:​index|osFree design and development concept]] for more details.
