I have uploaded a snapshot of my toy OS to http://home.comcast.net/~chputnam/. So far I have a floppy boot loader, very simple process creation, and a simple scheduler. If I had to assign a version number to this build, it would be 0.00001 or something else equally diminutive. Wink

No, it doesn't do much yet. But I think it's going in a good direction.

I know it's a differnent language but your goals are alike.

My OS is so unsecure, that people can walk in see theres nothing worth having and leave Laughing .

Unununium definitely has the same primary goal as KawaiiOS: elegance. I read a Linus Torvalds post where he argued that elegance was less important than having something that actually works, but since I'm doing KawaiiOS as an academic exersize, I'll try for elegance anyway. Wink

I decided against pursuing orthogonal persistence. I like the idea of being able to have a blank slate by rebooting the computer. The few persistent environments I have worked in (Smalltalk environments, any Macintosh configuration dialog box) are more trouble than they are worth. I also didn't want to mandate any particular language for applications or drivers, since the choice of the most suitable language depends on the application.

If you're into elegance, you might want to check out forth related stuff too. colorforth.com or http://ultratechnology.com/forth.htm for starters.
