ZenithOS – a modernized, professional fork of the 64-bit Temple Operating System. It is a direct reaction against corporate technological subversion, their takeover of free and open source software, and the removal of complete user control over computers.
Unlike the *nix atheists who thrive on distinguishing themselves from the “others” by making the system inaccessible, unintuitive, and require arcane knowledge to work with, we strive to be simple, documented, and require as little of a knowledge gap as possible. One person should be able to comprehend the entire system in at least a semi-detailed way within a few days of study.
Features in development include:
– Fully-functional AHCI support
– VBE support 32-bit color VBE graphics
– A new GUI framework in 32-bit color
– Compiler optimizations for speed improvements
– SSE2+ instruction support in compiler and assembler
– Network card drivers and a networking stack
The project started in 2019 as a fork of TempleOS.
