With so many projects in the world of Tech, its very easy to spend time merely focusing on the most common apps/distros, be it Firefox, Chromium, Ubuntu, Fedora or discussions about Gnome3, Unity or other hot topics from recent news.
Today we are looking briefly at MikeOS which is a rather unusual project and at the same time one with plenty of scope and rather exciting for those who really do wish to try their hand at coding.
Created by Mike Saunders of Linux Format fame, MikeOS is a basic functioning OS written entirely in assembly language. It appears to be aimed at getting users interested in coding (in particular at an assembly language level) and its got the potential to be a very rewarding experience and much fun for those of you who have never tried their hand at assembly language.
