Xinu ("Xinu is not unix") is a small, academic operating system to teach the concepts of operating systems to students. Developed at Purdue University by Dr. Douglas E. Comer in the early 1980s for the LSI-11 platform, it has now been ported to a variety of platforms.

Embedded Xinu is an update of this project which attempts to modernize the code base and port the system to modern architectures such as MIPS, while keeping the original goals of teaching operating system concepts to students.
