Porting the Framework to x86
I've been following the Micro Framework ever since it was first released.
And ever since I've been hankering to write a managed kernel, MF has assumed greater significance.
Basically, my plan is to write a kernel in pure C#/CIL, which runs JIT.
So there's some sort of bootable runtime, which runs the kernel, written in pure C#.
That way, you get all the advantages of code security, automatic memory management, and so on - something that you don't see in other managed kernels, such as Cosmos.
But there's a catch.
MF only runs on ARM chips right?
So I plan to port it to the x86 architecture.
I'd be grateful for any tips, ideas, anything that comes to your mind.
