Interim OS - Ramiferous - 23-04-2021

Just came across this recently on fosstodon

Anyone else has a look at Interim OS yet? I haven't been able to get it running yet as I don't have a Pi. Actually I didn't even succeed in building an image to begin with but that's probably because I didn't spend much time on it.

Just wanted to share and see what you all think :)

EDIT: Not a new project by any means, only new to me :)

I've seen this before and it's a really interesting project. I would love to try it on my rpi2, but currently keyboard only works over UART sadly :(

I'm in love with the Interim Computer Prototype! I would totally buy one if they went into production

The project is from the same creator as https://mntre.com/reform/ and I think he/she doesn't have much time for Interim at the moment...

Yes, I am aware. In fact this is how I stumbled across it. I've been eyeing off the MNT Reform2 for a while now.

I have since tooted @ MNT on mastodon asking if they'd provide an updated InterimOS image for the reform and, as you can see from their reply, it might be in the works :)

Personally, and as I've mentioned in another thread, I am keen to get get my hands on a Reform2 laptop to run SculptOS from Genode. This is also still a WIP but it is being worked on at Genode and there has been some more recent work on this as well scroll down to "First practical steps".

Anyway, I love both of these projects, and while Sculpt OS is a pretty big leap from what I understand an operating system to be, it really interest me. InterimOS interest me for other reasons, I suppose it's likeness to Plan9 is drawing me in. Cant wait to try out both of these obscure operating systems :)
