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.

RE[2]: Business model.

"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?
