Collapse OS

Bootstrap post-collapse technology
 Winter is coming and Collapse OS aims to soften the blow. It is a z80 kernel and a collection of programs, tools and documentation that allows you to assemble an OS that can:
 
  • Run on minimal and improvised machines.
  • Interface through improvised means (serial, keyboard, display).
  • Edit text files.
  • Compile assembler source files for a wide range of MCUs and CPUs.
  • Read and write from a wide range of storage devices.
  • Replicate itself.
  Additionally, the goal of this project is to be as self-contained as possible. With a copy of this project, a capable and creative person should be able to manage to build and install Collapse OS without external resources (i.e. internet) on a machine of her design, built from scavenged parts with low-tech tools.
May run on a CPC with small adaptations  ;D

use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

Indeed, I have contacted the author and he seems interesting in seeing it running on CPC.

The problem with generic OS is always that they need to do a 'compromise'. Personally I prefer a monolithic OS which is specially using the unique powers of the great series of CPC and Plus computers. To me, two of that kind are know.

hmm, supports megadrive - does it support existing megradrive keyboards and discdrives?

It'll run on the Z80 in the Megadrive, it says it supports a certain PS2 adaptor kit.


I wonder how it compares with other Z80 kernels - fuzix, symbos, and the like?


Extending it to support the CPC obviously requires a writing the drivers for the basic I/O the kernel supports already, and then the wider capabilities of the machine (that means binaries are not universal).

I am surprised no-one to date has created an OS for consoles like the SNES and megadrive though to turn them into a home computer.  Disc drives are not that easy to come by though these days, nor are native keyboards - but I am sure someone can adapt an SDCard to work on one.  I guess megadrive keyboards are even more difficult to come by as they to my knowledge were only made by Shinco.
