Winter is coming and Collapse OS aims to soften the blow. It is a z80 kernel and a collection of programs, tools and documentation that allows you to assemble an OS. The goal of the project is to be as self-contained as possible. With a copy of this project, a capable and creative person can build and install Collapse OS without external resources (like the internet) on a machine of her design, built from scavenged parts with low-tech tools.
The project is only relevant if the collapse is of a specific magnitude. A weak-enough collapse (just a few fabs that close down, a few wars here and there, hunger, disease, but people are nevertheless able to maintain current technology levels) and it’s useless. A big enough collapse and it’s even more useless (who needs microcontrollers when you’re running away from cannibals).
The project has been completed.
