In case you're also interested in niche operating systems and are also disenthused by the fact that most of them are hot garbage, I will provide my list of interesting operating systems projects:
- 9front (<3)
* Caveat: heavily involve C++ for some fucking reason
@sir not temple/shrine OS? :P
I'm really interested in checking out 9front but I'm intimidated by plan9 and don't know where to start with it.
@nihilazo slap it on an old thinkpad (read the FQA's hardware compat list for buying advice) and walk through the FQA
Then just, like, use it for a bit, idk, like a normal OS
@sir wow im surprised to see redox on this list seeing how much you hate rust. am i thinking of a different redox?
@jaxter184 I hate C++ more than I hate Rust and yet there are still C++ projects listed here
Just means I won't contribute to them and probably won't use them for more than 15 minutes
@jaxter184 my basic criteria for this list is (1) FOSS (2) has made significant progress (3) seem to be taking it seriously and isn't written by complete dipshits
rust users 🤝 c users
@username nonfree projects can get fucked as far as I'm concerned
The only thing I know about ToaruOS is it is the basis for PonyOS
@sir are *BSDs not niche for you - at least more exotic ones, such as DragonflyBSD? (I won't call the bigger ones: FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD niche, but the rest?)
