Releasing MOROS 0.8.0
MOROS is a text-based hobby operating system targeting computers with a x86-64 architecture and a BIOS. It is inspired by Unix and ITS but is closer to a modern DOS at the moment in term of features.
What's new in MOROS 0.8.0?
- Userspace programs can now be written in Rust! They can also have command line arguments and return an exit code
- New commands were added:
- The shell got improved with the addition of variables, aliases, globbing, and tilde expansion
- The Python FUSE driver can now write and delete files from a filesystem image

How to run MOROS?
The binary can be booted from USB on a computer with a BIOS or from a virtual machine with Bochs, QEMU, or VirtualBox. Here's a quick way to do it with QEMU:
qemu-system-x86_64 -m 32 -cpu max -nic model=rtl8139 -soundhw pcspk -hda moros-v0.8.0.bin
