There should be a category for bare metal/OS development


#1

I guess it just seems fitting for there to be a category for this considering this is largely a “hobby” OS.


#2

What’s wrong with the category for drivers? Support for ARM64 is being added therefore hardware compatibility will not be present between platforms otherwise AFAIK.


#3

I don’t see how a category for drivers has anything to do with baremetal programming in general.


#4

Simple. RedoxOS is designed to be secure above all else. Drivers are the only way to access the hardware in a secure operating system.

@SamuraiCrow

I don’t mean within redox. I mean, for other people working on their own OS projects.


#6

Ummm… If it’s not within Redox, why would it be in a RedoxOS forum?


#7

Same reason why other forums for other things have sections that aren’t directly related to whatever the forum is for
