KolibriOS

Is a small, open-source x86 operating system written completely in assembly. It was forked from MenuetOS in 2004 and has run under independent development since.

In a 2009 review piece on alternative operating systems, TechRadar called it "tremendously impressive", noting its performance and streamlined codebase.

Pre-emptive multitasking, streams, and parallel execution of system calls

Boots in a few seconds from various devices, with support for NTFS and Ext2/3/4; can also boot from Coreboot and Windows (Windows will shut down)

Graphical user interface based on, and optimised for, VESA

Development kit: code editor with an integrated macro assembler (FASM)

Most distributions will fit on a single 1.44 MB floppy disk image
