An OS. Doesn't need to be RT. The main problem will be design. I
suggest you clone MS-DOS version 1 (or CP/M). I expect you will run
into trouble using small C and will want to interupt the OS
development to implement another language. I suggest Forth. In any
case you will have a much better idea of what you want in a new
language if you have an application (the OS) in mind.
