Sorry, this has probably been argued much more than I know, but I was hoping someone could enlighten me since I haven't been paying much attention to the postings recently. I realize that it looks like Robert has chosen a Linux derivative as the new kernel for his experiment and has made some progress, but how about the MonaOS kernel? It's an RTOS microkernel that's less than 100K in size written in C++ and open source/free. It's also in active development. Wouldn't it be relatively easy to build SkyOS around that? :|

Please don't slander me since, again, I'm not fully aware of all the preceedings and I'm not a pro at this. Thank you.
Oh, and by the way, if there's already been a posting on this please shoot me the link. Thanks.

Fluxgate out.

I have no opinion on this proposal. I'm just adding the missing link: MonaOS

Also note that its license is MIT.

I doubt using the MonaOS kernel would be a solution for the problem, the reason why an alternative kernel is proposed.
The reason behind it, was, the driver problem. A Linux kernel is being suggested since there are many drivers for video cards and wifi cards etc. available for Linux.
