Must be no larger that 5kb, Must have source included. You may copyright it if you wish.

Nothing dirty, have fun. Very Happy

How will the winner be judged?
Who owns the source code?
Can a sample application be included?
Will any application that is included considered part of the 1.5kB?
Are there any minimum requirements that the OS must do to qualify?

Good questions revolution here are your answers, I'll add them to the rules Wink

The winner will be judged by voting. (I will add a poll)

revolution wrote:

The person who wrote the code will own it.
revolution wrote:

You can include all the Apps you want. Very Happy
revolution wrote:

no, but there will be a 10kb limit on the apps.

The only minimum Is 512 bytes there is no limit to the code size before compiled.

Who gets to vote? Just the entrants or all of the fasm board members? Or other?

I meant does the OS have to support things like keyboard input, graphics mode output, USB sticks, etc. Would you accept an "OS" that is actually just an application that uses the BIOS for I/O? Essentially, how will the OSness of a submission be judged. What makes it an OS and distinguishes it from just another small app?

All off the fasam members will be able to vote, Your OS can do whatever you want you can add whatever drivers, how many if any, you can use I/O, as long as nothing in the rules are against, Do as you wish. The OS will be judged by
how much people like it, and for whatever porous they like it.

questions:
1. some rules seem both clear and logical, though imprecise. Others seem ad hoc, and unnecessarily restrictive, for example,
a. why 1.5 kilobytes?
b. why booting only from floppy, et al, but NOT HARD DRIVE????
2. languages: this is very perplexing to me. Why would anyone come to a FASM board, to advertise a contest employing C or C++? Nonsense. Either the code conforms to the FASM assembler, else, it is not a FASM contest.
3. Voting. This is a very big problem, because some members of the FASM community are not even FASM programmers, how would they identify a skillfully written program? With open registration, the door is open to voting fraud. I believe that a committee of five or seven ought to do the evaluation. I will not be volunteering to be one of those folks.
4. Perhaps you could explain your description of the "Top five OS". So far as I am aware, only DexOS uses FASM. I don't see Menuet in that list, nor Sol.

Ok how many kilobytes do you recomend?
Fine if you wish to do away with C,C++ I will
When you say top 5 OS's do you meen my sig?

Coddy41: Maybe 2kB to fit onto one CD sector?

BTW: I think that 4 of your top five OS's are all the same, i.e. Linux. Is it really true that those 4 Linux variants are in fact different OSes?

shoorick: 2716! Wow, now that takes one back into the dim dark ages of computing!

Is this a negotiation? Perhaps we can all vote on the size? Hehe, just like the government, the rules are constantly changing.

Maybe I can list my five most used OSes (in no particular order):
  • Win XP Home
  • Win XP Pro
  • Win XP Media Center
  • Win XP Tablet
  • Win XP Embedded

1.5 KB is definitively a bad idea. Since we already had 512b OS, 2KB might be interesting. But I really wonder if somebody joins...

Just hit the Image button. Or if somebody replies before you get to it then ask a mod to help you.
