ABSTRACT
JACKY is a new operating system kernel for IBM-PC compatible computers. This kernel is small, fast, and open source. It operates exclusively in 32-bit mode and features real preemptive multitasking and virtual memory. An operating system kernel is a big enough challenge to be discouraging at times. As an example, the command Interpreter I wrote over an one year period is trivial by comparison. On the other hand, since I do everything by myself I am able to keep the development on a unified path. The architecture that develops is I hope consistent (for better or worse) and thus the end product reflects the vision of a single programmer. It can be argued that this is the good, old- fashioned way of producing software.
