the mnemOS Book

This is the documentation for mnemOS (mnɛːmos), a hobby-grade, experimental operating system for small computers (and bigger ones, too). The mnemOS book includes a summary of mnemOS's design and a tour of the operating system's components, as resources for mnemOS users and contributors, and the rendered documentation for accepted mnemOS RFCs.

The mnemOS Book is an living document, and is updated on a best-effort basis. As mnemOS is in active development, some documentation in the book may not always be up to date with the latest state of the project. Also, some parts of the book have yet to be written.

If you encounter missing or inaccurate information, please let us know by opening a GitHub issue, or feel free to open a pull request to add to the book!
