CirnOS is an operating system for the Raspberry Pi built for the purpose of usability and simplicity. It provides a simple environment for running Lua scripts on Raspberry Pi. It has no kernel or time management – it is single threaded. You run your code on the device, and that is it.
CirnOS has only been tested on the Raspberry Pi Zero, but should work on the original Raspberry Pi and the Zero W.

If it is, then good news everyone I’ve written an operating system!
I’ve been debating this kind of a system with another friend. Were things better, and more secure when we had lots of small custom microcontrollers organizing things? or now where everything is running an app on a linux based os on a arm?
Not my space right now, but it was fun one to play with when I was.
From the Readme:
“It has no kernel or time management
It does not need a kernel,
“Copy kernel.img from OBJ into the root of the SD Card.”
Leads to the philosophical question, what makes a kernel.
