Now This Excites Me

Via a news article on OSNews, I have been introduced to a new operating system this morning, and it’s making me sit up, notice and want to start coding.

It’s called GNU/Fiwix and is designed to be completely compatible with Linux, but the implementation is intended to be simpler. The intention is, once created, it can be used as an example operating system for Computer Science students to start learning how to create operating systems.

I did my time at University learning how to write for embedded operating systems by using VxWorks, but I’ve always felt that was a little lacking because the kernel was already there, and you weren’t implementing the kernel itself.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to download it and run it in VMWare and look at the source code to see how it works!
