What is aOS?aOS is a small 32-bit operating system for x86-based machines that is designed to run off of a floppy. It's being programmed in C and Assembly, and I'm writing it in my spare time.
Project goals:Experiment with OS design and learn how computers and operating systems work Create an OS which can quickly boot and provide easy-to-use tools and games Make application development easier, faster, and more fun with lots of easy-to-use functions Give me something to do in my spare time :) To build the source, do a SVN checkout and then run make inside of the trunk directory. You can then run make image to build a floppy image. You will need to set up a cross-compiler, though. See the wiki for more information.
If you want to start writing programs for aOS, you can download the Win32 SDK. Note that it will only work on 32-bit Windows computers for now. There is a download link to the right.
I'm working on documenting all of the API functions and creating a quick reference guide. It's not done yet, though, so please be patient.
The latest version of aOS is: Version 0.2-beta
This is a beta release. Please try out this release (available on the downloads page) and report any bugs you find.
