Ghost Kernel

What's going on? 2018/01/17, 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 and got a new job and I was really quite busy.

Another reason is that I'm currently playing with the thought of starting a new kernel project 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 will incorporate a lot of the existing stuff for sure.

Once I've got all my thoughts together and know where this will be going, I will post an update here. If you have any suggestions of stuff that you would like to see in the new project, feel free to leave some comments!

The work on MeetixOS, the OS based off the current kernel is still continued by Marco. Check his page for updates meanwhile!

      Hello Hamidreza,

      that's actually an interesting topic, because it must be considered when designing the memory management. I'll think about using an alternative for the classic memory model right from the start.
