My goals for 2018 included writing an operating system and adopting a puppy.

I adopted a cat. But I still wrote the operating system. Or, technically, still *am writing* the operating system.

And it's open source on Github: https://github.com/egranata/puppy

It is still not finished, and definitely needs work and polish in quite a few areas, but so far it boots QEMU/Bochs and even (some) real hardware!

Contributions welcome!

Can you please tell me can it boot on a virtualization software (VirtualBox or VMWare...)? I want to test it on a virtual machine other than Bochs.

And is the operating system name Puppy? WTF cat then Puppy....

I will try to make a CD that install this Operating system...

Is it a good idea to appropriate the name of a popular Linux distribution?

I thought that, but then I noticed Puppy Linux Blog proudly lists, "Monthly Hits: 10". That might be more popular than most of the OSs here, but I don't know. :)
