We report regularly about Visopsys - one of the few hobby operating systems that survived where virtually all the others (SkyOS, Syllable, etc.) died out. They've got a new website, which seems like a nice occasion to give it some attention again.

The bulk of Visopsys is a fully multitasking, 100% protected mode, virtual-memory, massively-monolithic-style kernel. Added to this is a bare-bones C library and a minimal suite of applications - together comprising a small but reasonably functional operating system which can operate natively in either graphical or text modes. Though it's been in continuous development for a number of years, realistically the target audience remains limited to operating system enthusiasts, students, and assorted other sensation seekers.

Don't let the site confuse you. That last news item, that reads "Dec. 19"? That's from *2012*.

I can *swear* it used to actually say 2012. Not sure what to make of that.

It seems there was some "problems" with the site hosting, it's an old version of the site. Check here: http://forum.syllable.org/viewtopic.php?t=2000

I hope the project doesn't die, alternatives are always necessary.
