I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

Embeddable Linux. The intent here is to port Linux to 8086 and 80286 processors. Why not? Xenix ran on those, and while the lack of a protected mode CPU on the 8086, and the limited powers of the 80286 make it all challenging, I had Xenix installations doing real work on 8086 machines.

The website says:


The initial proposed targets are the Intel 8086 and eventually the
286's 16-bit protected mode. A kernel that can run on this kind of
hardware is useful for embedded systems projects, for third world
deployment where 80x86 x>0 machines are not easily available, and
for use on various palmtops.
