In this paper we have presented the Adaptive Domain Environment for Operating Systems
as a solution for sharing hardware resources amongst multiple operating systems.
We have presented its architecture and suggested an implementation method for the
ix86 using Linux as the base OS. We have also defined areas of applicability. Although
the implementation discussion has centered around on the ix86 using Linux, the
concepts presented may be extended to other architectures and other base operating
systems in order to provide the same capabilities.
Given the current state of the operating system market and the research field,
Adeos may be used to provide a bridge between both fields and promote
the development of more flexible and cooperative operating systems. This would
provide system administrators and programmers with the flexibility needed to
develop user-friendly operating environments and applications that are not limited
by the choice of a single operating system.
