The garbage collector is similar to the ETH Oberon collector. All
processors are stopped and a mark-sweep collection done. It is in
AosHeap.Mod. An incremental or parallel garbage collector would be
better for Aos.
Gneiss was a microkernel for distributed message-passing systems. It
didn't have automatic memory management.
