I've got 256 MB of RAM and an AMD Athlon XP processor. I've got an S3 ProSavage8 KM266 on-board video card which I believe is a bit of a fussy one for using advanced features like 3D acceleration and so on. I've got a floppy drive and plenty of floppies for testing; I can't offer hard disk driver testing at the moment and I've got a CD drive but I'm not supplying any CDs or accepting any postal offers - I can test disk reading and ejecting and audio playback for you, but not booting or burning. I've also got a SCSI card in there but no hard drives for testing (I've got one which I use with the card sometimes but it's in use for the foreseeable future). If you're interested then please PM me - I WON'T reply to testing requests in this thread because I'm never going to remember to check it.

Did anyone ever asked for testing down there?
If it didn't; Congrats! All active users with a floppy drive and floppy disk could test my operating system when I finish version 0.0.2.

zenzizenzicube: NVMe is made for servers and internet providers, not for workstation, home or office use.

I doubt you'll find anyone who does happen to have one. You can use QEMU, though. The syntax is not obvious but here it is:
Code:
qemu-system-x86_64 -drive file=disk.hdd,if=none,id=disk -device nvme,drive=disk,serial=nvme.txt

Notice that QEMU's BIOS (SeaBIOS) doesn't support booting from NVMe device. You'll need to use another drive to boot your OS, and test NVMe from within your OS.

Thanks. Which versions support NVMe, or do I need to use one of the forks I see on GitHub?

In my experience, the version available from Ubuntu's repository (Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04) supports it. On Windows, this port supports it.
Before trying to install anything new, just try it from your existing version. If it supports the NVMe device, you don't need to do anything.

Why do you think so? The latest Macs use NVMe, for instance. Other manufacturers ship NVMe laptops too.
