That is the special thing about my code -- the closer you get to the "bare metal", the less dependencies you have on any particular operating system. Instead of the "eips" calls, we can use any other way to clear the screen or trigger an update that works. My external dependencies are only for primitive functions that should be easy to replace with whatever the host OS provides. They would even be easy to port to any OS that supports SDL (linux, mac, windows) instead of /dev/fb0. Or if you boot from DOS, you could write directly to the video RAM.

You did see "bare metal" under my logo, right?

With a little effort, this stuff could even run by launching it to RAM with MfgTool (linked to or loaded by a modified u-boot). Yes, I want eink support in u-boot, and touchscreen too!
