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.
