Welcome to Harvey, we are delighted that you are interested in the project.
Harvey is a distributed operating system. It’s most directly descended from Plan 9 from Bell Labs. This heritage spans from its distributed application architecture all the way down to much of its code. However, Harvey aims to be a more practical, general-purpose operating system, so it also uses ideas and code from other systems.
Starting July 2020, we will be replacing Harvey's user mode programs with programs written in Go. Many of these will come from u-root.
You enjoyed playing with Harvey and you want to help out? Great!
Harvey is a proud member of SFC and gladly accepts donations.
