Games "MineAssemble is a tiny bootable Minecraft clone written partly in x86 assembly. I made it first and foremost because a university assignment required me to implement a game in assembly for a computer systems course. Because I had never implemented anything more complex than a 'Hello World' bootloader before, I decided I wanted to learn about writing my own kernel code at the same time. Note that the goal of this project was not to write highly efficient hand-optimized assembly code, but rather to have fun and write code that balances readability and speed. This is primarily accomplished by proper commenting and consistent code structuring." Just cool.

Why is it impressive? Until the 32 bit age, most OS for home systems were fully or partially written in Assembly.

Sure, those old operating systems were impressive too.

Are you saying your don't find MenuetOS impressive? Have you tried it?

No, because I experienced first hand all those operating systems when they were new.

Sure Assembly programming is hard when compared to using higher level languages, but many old dinosaurs like myself used it as our daily tool back then.
