Does the night kernel carry on with the old DOS/DPMI API or does it have a new API? It sounds interesting but I can`t find the slightest info about it.

There seems to be a forum of sorts for the Night Kernel at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum ... dos-kernel

I am still following the progress of the Knight kernel. It seems like there still seems to be some progress going on with the project. On my Linux box, I set up a "play along" section where I have the Knight kernel source and the NASM compiler, and I do an occasional compile to see how it all works.

I had a really crazy thought the other day of maybe making derivative build of the Knight kernel. Instead of having a freeDOS+command.com setup, build something that just runs with the Knight kernel, then you could have a straight forward control of the multitasking aspect of the Knight kernel. But, what do I know.
