Original OSNews Interviews OSNews sat down with Ian Seyler, the Founder and Lead Programmer at Return Infinity, the maker and sponsor of Baremetal OS, a 64-bit OS for x86-64 based computers written entirely in Assembly. Editor's note: We'd love to do similar interviews with the people behind other alternative or hobby OS projects. If there's a project that you'd like to learn more about, let us know.

If you mean something "bigger" - try ForthOS ( http://www.forthos.org/ ). The "smaller things" - e.g. for microcontrollers - are obvious (CamelForth, cforth etc.), since Forth "likes to be an OS".

The biggest sense in using Forth is using it "standalone" - I mean: with NO control of any underlying "external" OS.

Oh, I forgot: http://www.openfirmware.info/Open_Firmware - here you are: "easily portable OS or kernel written in Forth; Forth suitable for writing an OS kernel for x86/x86-64 hardware" - everything you requested in just one software package.
