    33HelenOS is a [wiki:HardwareSupport#Architectures portable] microkernel-based multiserver operating system designed and implemented from scratch. It decomposes key operating system functionality such as file systems, networking, device drivers and graphical user interface into a collection of fine-grained user space components. These components interact with each other via message passing. A failure of one does not directly harm others. HelenOS is therefore flexible, modular, extensible, fault tolerant and easy to understand.

     5HelenOS trades compatibility with legacy operating systems and APIs for clean design. Most of HelenOS components have been made to order for HelenOS.
