Collapse OS – Bootstrap post-collapse technology

It is a z80 kernel and a collection of programs, tools and documentation that allows you to assemble an OS that can:

  1. Run on minimal and improvised machines.

  2. Interface through improvised means (serial, keyboard, display).

  3. Edit text files.

  4. Compile assembler source files for a wide range of MCUs and CPUs.

  5. Read and write from a wide range of storage devices.

  6. Replicate itself.

Additionally, the goal of this project is to be as self-contained as possible. With a copy of this project, a capable and creative person should be able to manage to build and install Collapse OS without external resources (i.e. internet) on a machine of her design, built from scavenged parts with low-tech tools.

The project lives on github
