OSNews, Generic OSes "A tiny 32 bit kernel written in Rust. I was inspired to download Rust and try to do this after seeing zero.rs - a stub that lets Rust programs run almost freestanding. It paints the screen bright red and then hangs. That's it."

DOS was horrible. Every minute we had to press a reset button when it hung. We could only type for 30 seconds before some virus got us. The Commodore 64 was even worse.

The Commodore 64 was the most sold personal computer ever. There's probably so many wrong people around the globe, who knows...

That depends on what you meant by "computer," "personal," "sold," and "ever."

I was one of those, but I can't remember having to reset it every 30 seconds (games used to take 30 minutes to load from cassette!) or having problems with a virus.

It sure had better flight simulators than TempleOS.

I have bad news for you. This is not a failure with DOS, it's a PEBCAK.
