Lites is a discontinued Unix-like operating system, based on 4.4BSD and the Mach microkernel. Specifically, Lites is a multi-threaded server and emulation library that provided unix functionality to a Mach-based system. At the time of its release Lites provided binary compatibility with 4.4BSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD, 386BSD, UX (4.3BSD) and Linux.[1]

Lites was originally written by Johannes Helander at Helsinki University of Technology, and was further developed by The Flux Research Group at the University of Utah.[2]
