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."

I seriously can't tell if you are truly deranged or just pulling our legs.

The former. I recall this loon plaguing the osdev forums a few years ago, when his incarnation was still called LoseThos (I guess God hasn't ordained a proper name). His code is as messy as his thinking, and the design of his OS is, as I recall, quite bad. He seemed harmless though, if not terribly annoying.

He wrote an OS just to troll us, give the guy an award.
If the FSF and other fundamentalists could get their hands on this guy though...
