Written entirely in x86 assembly language, MikeOS is designed as a learning tool for assembler and basic OS design. New features in 1.1 include a Mac OS X build script and various improvements to the Handbook, which explains how it works and how to make your own first OS.

Sweet! I remember seeing this a while back, but forgot about it. I’ll have to try it out. Both the handbook and OS itself look well put together.
Unfortunately, being written in assembly puts it a touch beyond my skills… the only assembly I’ve ever touched was writing a tiny bootloader, and then I ran fast and far away.
But the handbook is absolutely Good Stuff.
Edit: Learning ‘touls’? And I can’t edit the title? Guess I could use a little more learning myself…

…something named after me, and a perfect fit as well, a “simple tool.”
OK, why is it that when I click on the screenshots on that site, Firefox opens them in IE, rather than viewing them itself?
