90,000 visitors to the site so far

We have had about 90,000 visitors and almost 30,000 downloads so far. Hopefully a substantial number of people are now checking this news page and the newsgroup: comp.os.minix regularly.

Where to from here? We are working on a number of things at the VU, including automatic recovery from driver failures, a simple virtual memory model, and X Windows. But we are definitely interested in getting help from other people. Some things that would be very useful are:

  • Ports of more software
  • Device drivers
  • Another windowing system as a lightweight alternative to X
  • Ports of MINIX 3 to other architectures
  • Volunteers to test new releases

We may try to set up some infrastructure for community development, but for the moment, use comp.os.minix for suggestions and discussion.
