Hello friends!

I'm making an operating system from scratch, based on how computing used to feel to me as a kid. I grew up with Visual Basic on Windows 3.1, and later discovered the joy of Unix starting with Slackware.

Serenity is a love letter to '90s user interfaces, with a custom Unix-like core. It flatters with sincerity by stealing beautiful ideas from various other systems.

My goal is to build a system that's good enough to use as your main operating system, and then to keep developing it further while keeping the original vision in mind.

I regularly post raw videos of me working on various parts of the system to my YouTube channel. I've never studied operating systems or developed them professionally, so I'm learning this as I go.

Everything I do is open source, and available on my GitHub.

Serenity was featured on the Hacker News front page and also on OSNews.com in the end of March 2019. I had just made a brief demo video of the system the day before.

If this speaks to you in any way, then perhaps you would consider supporting my project. :)
