Kolibri: 1.44Mb of cute

Filed under

This might not be of interest to you, but to me, it’s a miracle of modern science.

How KolibriOS squeezes all that into 1.44Mb is beyond mortal comprehension. And it’s not just that there’s a blinking cursor attached to a terminal somewhere, but an entire graphical system, complete with notepads, system monitors, games, utilities and more nifty doodads than you can shake a stick at. The mind boggles.

Like anything it’s dependent upon hardware, but you’re looking at the same 120Mhz Pentium I use on a daily basis with Debian against the framebuffer. Run-of-the-mill it is not.

I would endorse this in a heartbeat
