There should be a category for bare metal/OS development

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

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.

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

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


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

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

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