OSNews, Generic OSes ScaraOS is a 32-bit, multiboot-compliant, monolithic OS kernel. It has the beginnings of a paged VM system and VFS. It supports PCI, DMA, AT floppies (read only), EXT2, and can do all the low-level stuff expected of an OS kernel (program the PIC, handle interrupts, control the timer, etc.). It was written primarily to learn OS fundamentals. It boots using any multiboot bootloader, and it has been tested with grub on qemu and KVM. Bootable floppy images are available.

I'm not one to detract from scara's work, but I don't think that page has been updated since 2003 (unless the cvs id is wrong??)

It doesn't look too inactive. Maybe the ID is really wrong. The copyright says 2010 and on github there is also activity:
