Helios-NG

This is a project for breathing new live in Helios, an OS from the 90's. Helios was developed by the (now defunct) company called Perihelion Ltd., mainly targeting the INMOS Transputer but later adding other CPUs like the ARM series or TMS320c4x DSPs when INMOS' decline became clear.

#####Legal?

I got the permission from Perhelions fromer CEO Tim King and main programmer Nick Garnett to "[...] do whatever you want with the Helios sources." So here we are: "Helios Next Generation" or Helios-NG for short, put under GPL v3.

As for "the plan" (yes, there is one!), please check out the main Helios-NG page
