    This looks promising

    Hey all, just reading a magazine article and came across this...

    http://www.menuetos.org

    It is a 32bit, multithreaded O/S that fits on a single floppy disk! It has TCP/IP support, stereo sound etc...

    Now we just need somebody to take this source and develop a mp3car interface and make some changes to code so run videos etc...

    RISC, ARM? hoobeda

    I decided to take assembly language instead of metaphysics next semester, so maybe I'll give it a shot (and hopefully not shoot myself).

    Don't count on it, it's been around for a while. There just aren't enough people willing or ABLE to do this type of thing.

    Think it is alot of work as you would have to provide support for all the drivers of all different types of hardware. Now if there was some one brave enough to do it for a Mini-ITX board then that could be good. But it is still assembly and I know for a fact that I will not be doing it.

    MickNobody and I played around with this in our store for ****z and giggles one night. It was pretty slick for being so small, however the boot time was terrible. Assembly itself is fast as all get out, but man, that's one crazy language right there. I tried to get into it back in my Commodore 64 days. One word : ack.

    Try copying it to the hard drive, rather than the floppy, and you'll probably find it boots up in a few seconds

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway
