Well, I unhappily don't have time to produce a detailed answer,
so the only thing I can say is: start from the OS Review page,
and read the docs from the said operating systems.
use the following markers: #Inferno #Amoeba #Spring #Grasshopper #Plan9 #QNX
etc. You might also follow other OS indexes...
If you would be kind enough to contribute back
an explanation to the Tunes project,
and/or pointers to the most relevant pages and articles,
I would be immensely grafetul.
NB: all readers of this mail (uh, including me),
are invited to similarly send feedback to the project
about things they investigate...
