I began my OS with a serious effort in 1996, with some earlier work dating back to 1992. I worked on it extensively between 1998 and 2002, but I could only work on it on evenings, sick days, holidays, and weekends. I abandoned it in 2002 after my wife told me basically, "Choose, Rick. The OS or me." I chose her, but always kept it running in the back of my mind.

Here in 2014, 2015, and now 2016, I have plans to revisit it. I am hoping to create an API-compatible replacement for OS/2, and have renamed it from "Exodus" (at the time in the 1990s to be a mass departure from evil, which was Microsoft), to "Exodus/2" (or ES/2 for short).

It runs on real machines from i386 and up. Every machine I've tested it on that has PS/2 hardware and support for VGA and monochrome MDA has worked. Here you see it emulated in a specially modified version of Bochs (to support the VGA and MDA outputs).

Note: If you can't view the video, download and use VLC (http://www.videolan.org).

The OS source code (entirely in x86 assembly):

Why was this moved from the "What does your OS look like" thread?

Because the "What does your OS look like?" thread is meant for posting screenshots of your OS. It's basically meant to show whether your OS is graphical/console and how the user interface looks like.
Your post obviously does not contain a screenshot, but rather an announcement of your OS, which goes in the Announcements forum.

Well, the video I linked in the post is the screenshot. When you click on the link the first frame shows the OS, and the rest of the video explains it.

I can include a single still frame if that's a requirement of being in the "What does your OS look like?" thread. I thought the video pretty well explained what it looks like.

Best regards,

Rick is spamming in the name of Jesus. All for the everybody's salvation. You don't have to worry about your broken interrupt handling code when your soul is endangered. God forbid this site from such fate, that newsgroup has experienced.
