Collapse OS, a new future OS for Amstrad CPC ?

-

Collapse OS is a z80 kernel and a collection of programs, tools and documentation that allows you to assemble an OS that can (available on Github) :

  • 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.

His author has been contacted, he seems interesting in porting it on Amstrad CPC. It already works on RC2014 and the Sega Mega Drive.
