Collapse OS
'Bootstrap post-collapse technology' -- quite a pessimistic view on the future, but an interesting thought experiment I guess.

'An operating system designed to run on ad-hoc machines built from scavenged parts. Its development is going well and the main roadblocks are out of the way: it self-replicates on very, very low specs (for example, on a Sega Genesis which has 8K of RAM for its z80 processor).'
