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.

Business model.

This is going to sound extremely selfish (and it is) but if you ever do get a viable business model and can afford a team, look me up!

I'm not afraid of assembly. I know a thing or two about using the right structures for scalability. I'm fairly proficient in the math department. I have experience developing for multiple operating systems. I've got notches on my belt for implementing network protocols. I've implemented graphics rendering engines, PKI and async libraries. Oh I have a keen eye for security too.

:)

Alternatively, is anyone else in suffolk county NY hiring? I could really use a worthy tech job. Under employment is no fun.

I have been approached about possible funding. The only issue is that they want to see a proof of concept and my time is limited.

iseyler,

"I have been approached about possible funding. The only issue is that they want to see a proof of concept and my time is limited."

I'm not sure if you'd be better off marketing the OS by itself as a high performance clustering solution in general, or trying to focus on some kind of niche.


You and I both know that a baremetal cluster could solve almost any computational problem clients wanted to throw at it, but my gut feeling is that you might get more traction if you emphasize a specific problem domain.

Would you have any in mind?
