It's been nearly a year since I started my journey on developing a desktop operating system. With much help from forum members here.
Today I finally managed to stamp on a nasty bug (where my task scheduler was corrupting the ready list), and as such I consider the kernel to be functional now.

It's been a long slog and now I'm feeling a bit burned out, I have a laundry list of things to do... but it would be nice to hear some suggestions from people actually testing it.

See the link below for a bootable disk image, there are two programs included, prog.elf and draw.elf neither are very exciting (but show how to write software for the system)... the API is subject to change at this point so I'm not going to be writing much software for it yet :)

-Edit- Type help at the command prompt for a list of available commands.

I remember I tried your OS out a few months ago. Nice and fast! I'm gonna try it out on one of my machines here soon.

Cheers Nexos! You have been super supportive throughout the development of this project, I appreciate any feedback!

I can’t believe I’ve managed to get it to the stage where it can load executables, much of the early development was done in the evenings after a few beers… it really shouldn’t work at all :lol:

I get most of my work done in the morning, anywhere from 6:30 - 8:00 :lol: .

Totally! If I do any work in the morning, that’s my best work… That’s why I’m surprised late night drunken coding can produce anything viable :lol:

I have created a Discord Server so if anyone wants to chat about how I made the operating system, my design decisions, and even future direction/ideas just join here:
