I tested the demo floppy on an old PIII desktop, and
it booted fine. I also mounted it on my laptop and
changed the images to the one I compiled (names, log,
sigma0, rmgr, hello,...), and tested it on the
desktop, and it worked fine.

I don't want to go through any

Is it possible to write an application and device
drivers (user-space) that interact directly with
fiasco? Are there any simple hello-world kind of
examples or documentation for this?

I have been looking for a microkernel to work/test
directly with hardware. I don't need any fancy GUIs.
Even a console with VGA output is fine.

I don't know German :(
