DEX Extensible Operating System

DEX Extensible Operating System is an operating system specifically designed for educational and research use. It allows for the dynamic reconfiguration and customization of various system services using concepts found in extensible operating systems. It aims to create an operating system design that's easy to understand while having features that are common in today's modern operating systems. Unlike other small operating systems, it is powerful enough to support simple applications that require multithreading and file management. Its architectural design, with the help of Aspect-Oriented programming, enables easy modification and extensibility. It was developed in C and runs on PCs with 80386 processors or higher.
