Rump kernels enable you to build the software stack you need without forcing you to reinvent the wheels. The key observation is that a software stack needs driver-like components which are conventionally tightly-knit into operating systems — even if you do not desire the limitations and infrastructure overhead of a given OS, you do need drivers.

NuttX is a real-time operating system (RTOS) with an emphasis on standards compliance and small footprint. Scalable from 8-bit to 32-bit microcontroller environments, the primary governing standards in NuttX are Posix and ANSI standards. Additional standard APIs from Unix and other common RTOS's (such as VxWorks) are adopted for functionality not available under these standards, or for functionality that is not appropriate for deeply-embedded environments (such as fork()).
LNG is an operating system primarly for the good old Commodore64 home-computer. There also is a native version for the successor Commodore128. Ports to other 6502/6510 driven 8Bit Computers are possible but not yet started. LUnix started in 1993 and reached the internet in 1994. In 1997 LUnix0.1 was rewritten from scratch, the result is LNG.
This list is an exploration of the world of UNIX®, including UNIX history, the relevance of UNIX today, and lists select awesome UNIX and UNIX-like projects. This list also contains resources for UNIX standards, programming, communities, and free software.
Deploy and Manage Your Containers in the Next-Generation Container OS
Use immutable infrastructure to deploy and scale your containerized applications. Project Atomic mainly comprises Atomic Host, Atomic Workstation, and various container tooling. cloud native platforms.

Note that it is not limited to 8-bit processors: core code can be built for 6502, 6809, 68000, 8086, MSP430, pdp11 and Z80/Z180.
Node9 is a hosted 64-bit operating system based on Bell Lab's Inferno OS, but using the Lua scripting language instead of Limbo and the LuaJIT high performance virtual machine instead of the Dis virtual machine. It also uses the libuv I/O library for maximum portability, efficient event processing and thread management.
