What is this ?

This is a project providing a Linux-like OS for systems based on the Intel IA16 architecture (16-bit processors: 8086, 8088, 80188, 80186, 80286, NEC V20, V30 and compatibles).

Such systems are ancient computers (IBM-PC XT / AT and clones), or more recent SBC / SoC / FPGA that reuse the huge hardware & software legacy from that popular platform.
