Visopsys (VISual OPerating SYStem) – an alternative operating system for PC-compatible computers, written “from scratch”, and developed primarily by a single hobbyist programmer since 1997.
The bulk of Visopsys is a fully multitasking, 32-bit, virtual-memory, massively-monolithic-style kernel. Added to this is a bare-bones C library and a minimalist suite of applications – together comprising a small but reasonably functional operating system which can operate natively in either graphical or text modes. Though it’s been in continuous development for a number of years, realistically the target audience remains limited to operating system enthusiasts, students, and assorted other sensation seekers.
The basis of the system is the Partition Logic disk partitioning program, which allows you to create, format, delete, resize, defragment and move partitions and change their attributes. It is also possible to copy hard drives. The program is equipped with a user-friendly graphical interface.
Visopsys supports has file system:
– FAT 12/16/32
– ext2/ext3 (read only)
– CD-ROM (ISO9660/Joliet)
– DVD-ROM (UDF)
Visopsys is a minimalist system and is offered in three variants:
– iso image about 20MB
– USB image 2.5MB
– 1.44MB floppy disk image
The system is available under the GNU GPL license.
