Outerix is dedicated to making it possible to develop according to
published standards on Windows.
- A full Single UNIX Specification implementation as a Window
subsystem. Intended as a drop in replacement for Interix, Services for UNIX,
and Subsystem for UNIX Applications on Windows versions up to 8. Implemented
as a distribution for the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) on Windows 10.
- An implementation of the Single UNIX Specification on top of the Windows
API. The difference between Outerix and WOSIX is that WOSIX programs are
ordinary Windows programs that run in the Window subsystem, while Outerix
programs require an Outerix subsystem or WSL.
- A minimal implementation of the standard C (ISO/IEC 9899) library on top
of the Windows API. A full-featured, standards compliant replacement for
MSVCRT.DLL, with no runtime dependencies that aren't part of Windows
- A terminal emulator based on ECMA-48 to best interface with Outerix
and WOSIX programs.
