RadiOS, the Radiant Operating System, is a project to create a QNX Neutrino like operating system for the x86 architecture. It is written almost entirely in the assembly language and heavily utilizes NASMpreprocessor facilities and RDOFF binary file format. QNX (pronounced either Q-N-X or Q-nix) is a commercial POSIX-compliant Unix-like real-time operating system, aimed primarily at the embedded systems market. ... x86 or 80x86 is the generic name of a microprocessor architecture first developed and manufactured by Intel. ... Assembly language commonly called assembly or asm, is a human-readable notation for the machine language that a specific computer architecture uses. ... This article is about an assembler. ... In computer science, a preprocessor is a program that takes a source code and performs transformations on it, before the step of compilation or interpretation. ...
RadiOS consists of a microkernel, a task manager (equivalent of QNX's process manager, which implements processes, and memory and path management), some system libraries, and resource managers. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with Kernel (computer science). ...
The project is in very early stage of development. FOREVER.
