Cool! I have a friend who's designing his own 'con-CPU.' I've thought about it before, but wasn't all that interested in the idea. Now operating systems I can get into designing... It's just that the OS I've been dreaming up on and off I was originally going to do on a Commodore 128, but now I don't remember enough Commodore programming to do it, plus my Commodores aren't much in working order and emulators can be tricky, plus several people have already come out with multitasking OSes for Commodores, plus the name I was going to use for it (ECOS) has been taken, etc. *Sigh*. Oh well, it's still fun to think of things even if I never program them :)
