Major features include:
An Object Request Broker aiming for full CORBA 2.2 compliance and already a good amount accomplished towards this goal.
Uses Very Cool optimization techniques to provide thin, fast stubs and a memory-efficient, fast ORB. For example, an ORBit "echo this string back to me" client, with everything except basic system libraries statically linked, is under a tenth the /usr/bin/size of the equivalent MICO client.
Note that this is different from most other ORBs that have a preference for C++ ...

MICO had been adopted as the ORB for the KDE desktop environment project; they have since rejected CORBA for general use in favor of a custom IPC library.
From ATT Labs Cambridge (formerly Oracle and Olivetti research labs) comes a GPLed ORB for CORBA. It is reported that running this under Linux provides the fastest performing CORBA implementation presently available.
omniORB is the "ORB of choice" for the Fresco Graphical Environment.
