— In this OS there will be 2 isolated contiguous address spaces, one for supervisor mode and one for user mode

The MMU would then check the mode, then translate memory access to protect supervisor code and data from the user side

— Supervisor can reach both user and supervisor addresses while user can only access user addresses

— Oh wow

— Low-level

— This implemented in JS?

— It's like the ghetto version of psuedo-protected memory, before we really had it

— It will be!

— Is there a GitHub yet?

— Also need the link for your datacenter game thing

— If that's going public that is

— Since Apple's early OS used very CPU specific things for the Motorola 680X0 series a lot of the code will be recreating them
