Ghost Kernel

Planning something new 2018/04/17, 12:14:39

As you might have noticed, I've not been very active in the project within the last months. The main cause for this is that I've moved to a different city I was really quite busy.

Another reason is that I'm currently playing with the thought of starting a rewrite in which I want to clean up a lot of the things that inevitably go wrong in such a big project. There are some smaller issues but there are also a few design flaws that I can't easily fix on the existing code base. The new project would incorporate a lot of the existing stuff for sure.

Nothing sure yet, but I will post updates here. If you have any suggestions of stuff that you would like to see in the new project, feel free to leave some comments!

Meanwhile, check out MeetixOS, an OS based on Ghost Kernel and actively developed by Marco. Check his page for updates meanwhile!

    As of the writing of this comment I do not know practically anything about the Ghost operating system. I was looking for an answer about the HISTORY of operating systems and found this page through a link at the Wikipedia. The reason, why I'm commenting anything at all at this page right now is that I read that You are planning for a new version and thinking about a new architecture of the new version and I believe that You may save a considerable amount of trouble, if You take a look at the presentation of an "AntiKernel" operating system at

    The AntiKernel is NOT my project, but I have gathered all related material about it to my wiki

    The core idea behind the AntiKernel is that the microkernel is implemented directly at hardware, which can be an FPGA based system and this eliminates all "Operating System software overhead".

    Thank You for reading my comment.

      Hey Martin,

      thank you for your input, this is definitely an interesting concept. I'll look into the resources you provided. As for Ghost, I am - knowing just few things about AntiKernel at this moment - not sure if I have any business in this area, as this seems to be a concept which includes developing suitable hardware. Maybe virtualization might be of more interest to my project.

    Hello Max

    Please send a link from the new project or git.

    Hello max, how is everything, did you start with the new kernel? , I like the way Ghost is code and now I belive Im going to start to write something with purpose of learn about the topics, as you may know is so interesting, I know a litle bit where to start( ), but could you recommend about it, what to read and so.? thank you in advance.

      Hey ane, fine so far, I did not really start implementing anything for a new project. I'm not really sure which direction I want to go with a possible successor to this project, but I will keep this page posted with updates once I have more ideas.

      OSDev is definitely a great place to start. It's hard to recommend where to start though, depending on the field you want to continue in, you have to look for different lecture. Standards & official documents can often be quite helpful, too. Good luck!
