A microkernel operating system distribution offering (among other things) very low hardware requirements, full and easy portability and easy-readable source code.
The Elias Initialization System is a non-"copylefted" operating system loader which will be multiboot-compliant as well as implementing a new booting standard (yet to be developed) which will greatly simplify operarating system development.
With this project I intend to write a really, really simple OS, just for fun and learning. I think I will never have a really usable version, as I said, that's no my objective.
Nemesis is a tiny real time operating system kernel based on x86 PCs. Its main purpose is to serve as a simple but realistic example of an real time OS kernel running on real hardware..the purpose of this is that it can be embedded in small devices lik
Master Boot Record code with menu selection of the partition to boot. Fits in 1 sector. Supports boot from extended partitions.
A new advanced customizable graphic menu multi boot and OS loader based on XOSL project with gujin project features, this project integrate too a mini OS to provide certain customizable specialized maintenance tasks before boot partition/load OS target.
LeanLoader is a modularized boot loader for tiny embedded systems including 8-Bit AVR or low end ARM7TDMI MCUs. Among others, it supports TFTP over Ethernet as well as XMODEM over RS232.
Linux bootloader for the Palm OS
The Danber project aims to create an operating system where both Windows and Linux programs can be run: it is a Windows NT based kernel, but with UNIX user mode compatibility. Support for both PE and ELF executable formats.
Exteb provides a framework for bootloaders also including tools for developing and managing bootloaders.
wola (Wake-on-Lan Anyway) is a project that provides software and documentation for hardware, in order to enable Wake on Lan support on computers that cannot do it.
Open Source Object Oriented Operating System for Intel 32-bit architecture.
A small operating system primarily made for learning operating concepts and designs.
The Cheap-OS project is a project about creating an oprating system with both an operating system for everyone by everyone and with everyone, a os capable of both CLI and a simple GUI. The os should also be capable of launching .EXE and .com executeables
A port of the Linux operating system kernel to the single board computer Scout from Motorola.
I have developed and tested a small 32-bits Kernel running on i386. I want to share it to this developers community. The kernel is developed in Assebly Language and it have bootloader, multitask, etc, etc...
CEBOOT is a free open source project, just for study something about ARM. It will contains text user interface, simple FS and OS loader. We will prove that "ARM system could run as x86 PC!"
This project is intended to be a simple boot loader to bootstrap a FreeBSD PPC kernel on the PS3 so that other developers can start porting the complete OS to the target platform. A otheros.bld file and build process will be supplied with the code.
Fortress OS is an open source modern multitasking operating system. Intel IA-32 386 compatibility. Fortress is clean implemented from scratch. Fortress is still in early stage ( current state at the end of plan 2 ) and needs huge work.
RemoteBIOS is a set of tools that helps you to writen LinuxBIOS bios, test it flashing only one time the ROM, with remotebios.bin. And you can remotely execute a ELF binary, or a script, for example memory initialization script,etc through Serial Port.
