About IntyOS
 Online Demo

IntyOS is a multitasked operating system for the Intellivision console. It includes a powerful GUI which handles a mouse pointer, windows, menus, icons, etc.

Right now, only binary files are available. But IntyOS will soon be released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) with complete source code and documentation.

Current available version : 0.2 Alpha

This project was initiated just for the fun of it after a thread was started by Joe Zbiciak in the IntvProg discussion list about Contiki, another open-source operating system for very small computers. However, IntyOS is not a port of Contiki and does not have the same desktop environment, nor the same built-in tools. It was written from scratch in CP-1600 assembly language in order to fit exactly to the hardware specificities of the Intellivision. Its main goal is now to see how far it's possible to go with today's technologies on such a limited system from the early 80's ...

A next step will certainly be to add an Internet connection ;-)

Have fun!

Version 0.3 Beta seems almost ready for primetime but I didn't have a chance to work on a decent documentation. So, a new release should be done "Real Soon Now" (TM), including new features, all sources and ... er ... maybe some clues about the way it's working. :-)
