Hi all! I am writing my own Operating System in x86 Assembly! I will be calling it Paradigm OS. So far I have implemented printing to the screen, an ATA disk drive, minimal FAT fs support, paging, scheduling/multitasking, user mode support, system calls, exception handling, and basic PCI functionality. I am currently stuck on virtual paging (a separate page directory for each process).

Awesome! :D Is this all running in real mode, or protected mode? Also, what kind of minimum specs are you targeting?

Protected mode all the way! At the time of this writing, the minimum specs are: a 80486 processor, 8 MB of RAM, an RTL8139 network card, and 78.8 KB of disk space.

That's awesome. I wish I can achieve such an endeavor, but alas, I can't program. I wish I can be a good programmer and be able to solve logic puzzles like you guys.
