Most modern operating systems have been designed to operate without restriction on the hardware they use. This is a very limited environment for both application programmers and system administrators as extension and operative modifications are impossible.

The Adaptive Domain Environment for Operating Systems (Adeos) introduced here provides an extensible and adaptive environment which can be used to enable the sharing of hardware resources among multiple operating systems or among multiple instances of the same operating system.

The implementation details of Adeos on the ix86 using the Linux OS as the host are presented as are fields of application. For each application field, a suggested deployment architecture is presented.
