A hobby operating system for
x86 computers written in modern C++20 .
It gains the power of the
UNIX philosophy, but experiments new designs at the same time.

Current Project Direction
After a very long hiatus, with side projects and various incomplete re-implementation of the MeetixOS (in
Rust), I decided to return to the original MeetixOS's codebase then progressively rewrite and improve each
existing component and write new ones.
Then I've decided to follow the fashion and implement near all the necessary code from myself to increase the fun and the learning effect.
Currently, I'm working on
LibTC, the Template Collection Library.
The goal is to make it usable in all the OS contexts, from the kernel to the applications, as substitute of
After the completion of
LibTC and after having tested it thoroughly, the next step is to start rewriting the kernel.
The idea is to make it a monolithic Unix-Like kernel which exposes standard UNIX filesystem features
It could be a good idea to expose custom object-oriented system-calls (using Handle oriented call, like
wrapped into C++ RAII objects) which can be wrapped easily by the
LibC functions to expose a standard UNIX/POSIX
system call interface for future ports.
No More GUI
The GUI is temporarily disabled since the old WindowServer is not stable enough, and because I want to develop a new Compositor system (probably after the new kernel), which allow by default to draw via canvas to a shared buffer.
