The Rust language focusedRedox OS open-source operating system is now able to boot the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 64-core/128-thread processor and run with full multi-threading capabilities.
While one of the fundamentals of the Rust programming language is on offering safe concurrency, Redox OS itself had a multi-core issue until this week when it was sorted out by lead Redox OS developer (and System76 engineer) Jeremy Soller.
He in turn verified the working multi-core system by using a System76 Thelio Major with the stunningThreadripper 3990X.
Every process at boot get its own core and then some :grin:April 18, 2020
Great to see Redox OS micro-kernel SMP support coming together and in due course will be interesting to see its performance... Especially at last check GNU Hurd still lacking SMP and x86_64 support .
