Simplix Running on Real Hardware

This morning, as I was just finishing up the code responsible for detecting IDE devices (hard disks, CD-ROM drives, etc.) in Simplix, I felt like trying my operating system on real hardware. I have a 4 year old PC with a floppy drive at home, so I decided to give it a shot. The result is pure geek pleasure. Cheers!

    Just wanted to say congrats on seeing your code working, it’s always a wonderful thing when you try something you’ve been coding out for the first time and it works :)
    It sounds like your having a blast working on your project :)

    Thanks Robert. Not only this has been (and continues to be) a fun project, but I’ve also acquired a good amount of knowledge in low level system development. Who knows, one day, I may apply these skills to a more practical project… Until then, stay tuned for more articles.
