dear @andymc , Thank you very much for Visopsys !
I tested your OS inside the Virtual Box --- Visopsys is amazing. And, most importantly, it has a live floppy! :D
Even today the floppies are still being used, for example - as virtual floppies inside the coreboot open source BIOS.
Just imagine: your wonderful OS could be a part of someone's BIOS build!
(for coreboot supported motherboard, maybe you have or could get one - see https://www.coreboot.org/Supported_Motherboards )

If you already have a coreboot-supported hardware or a real chance to get one
(e.g. have seen used Lenovo G505S laptop with quad core AMD A10-5750M at eBay for just $100)
- wouldn't it be cool to be able to launch your own OS straight from the BIOS chip? ;)

With one simple command its possible to add any bootable floppy to coreboot BIOS build
and then you see it as a boot entry. Multiple floppies could be added this way
(as long as you have enough space left inside the BIOS flash chip,
luckily LZMA compression could be used for the stored floppies to reduce their occupied size)


I wish you good luck in your project, Andy. Visopsys is awesome
