He wasn't even writing a kernel when he started - if I remember right

I'll have myself a piece of humble pie, eat my hat, whatever the expression is for being wrong (again). His original post was to develop an OS. I always remember "Remember When Men Were Men and Wrote Their Own Device Drivers?" & google that to find it. Apparently it's available in his wiki.

That's correct, I think we agree on the sequence now. He started out working on a thing, and along the way he realized that he was writing a kernal. (What Dan Savage would call a "How'd that happen?" moment)

I was working on x86 when I last worked on it. The last time I attempted to run it was on a VM that had an i5 processor (x86-64). I plan to eventually (hopefully) get it running on ARM though. Once I get a bootloader working as I expect, and a kernel loaded that does something of any interest.
