...but maybe someone can explain to me how this code
constitutes an operating system?
Well, looks like there's a few asm files there that basically bootstrap an environment that can load/run the rust runtime - at which point the contents of the .rs files are executed.
It's really not an operating system so much as it's proof that you can boot directly into a rust runtime environment without another OS... whether that rust runtime can then actually utilize all the hardware present on the machine is perhaps a more important question.
I know nothing about Rust... so <shrug>
