The goal of this project is to build a 64-bit POSIX-compliant tick-less kernel with a Linux-compatible syscall implementation using Go.
This project is not about building yet another OS but rather exists to serve as proof that Go is indeed a suitable tool for writing low level code that runs at ring-0.
Note: This project is still in the early stages of development and is not yet in a usable state. In fact, if you build the ISO and boot it, the kernel will eventually panic with a
Kmain returned error.
