DISCLAIMER: These notes are from the defunct k8 project which precedes SquirrelJME. The notes for SquirrelJME start on 2016/02/26! The k8 project was effectively a Java SE 8 operating system and as such all of the notes are in the context of that scope. That project is no longer my goal as SquirrelJME is the spiritual successor to it.


I actually put a note down to say something yesterday but I never did.


I thought about making a server based approach for the virtual machine as that would be a bit cleaner and such, however I would then have to handle all of the special permissions and security cases for every OS that I port it to. The virtual machine in C is just a test so I can get a working kernel eventually, so I will stick to a "client" only single instance virtual machine where everything is just a single process, but multiple threads.
