I've vaguely wondered for a while about porting xv6 to sh.


If MIT is going to have a modern operating systems course based on that,
then we should have an equivalent processor design course that
interlocks with it. :)

In theory Google Fuchsia is a realtime system. In practice most things
start out as realtime systems because there's a very primitive scheduler
and no background processes so why NOT make it realtime. (If it grows
into something usable, that tends to fall by the wayside.)
