    Demo of the potential of C# for systems programming with the .NET native ahead-of-time compilation technology.

    You should definitely start with what Michal Strehovsky wrote: - https://medium.com/@MStrehovsky/building-a-self-contained-game-in-c-under-8-kilobytes-74c3cf60ea04 - https://github.com/MichalStrehovsky/zerosharp/tree/master/efi-no-runtime

  • EfiSharp

    An Attempt at building at least some of C# corelib for EFI applications. Inspired by https://github.com/MichalStrehovsky/zerosharp to see if this possible.

    More detailed explanation how to jump into UEFI - https://codevision.medium.com/running-c-snake-inside-uefi-df193b6213e2 a bit more details introduction how to make UEFI application in C#. (Disclaimer - written by me) - https://github.com/JoshuaWierenga/EfiSharp - Collection of functions for working with UEFI in C#.

  • ZeroKernel

    Bringing kernel driver to C# with MichalStrehovsky's zerosharp

    https://github.com/ZeroLP/ZeroKernel - This is kernel driver, but maybe that can give you idea what low-level C# can look like.

  • KernelSharp

    C# Kernel Mode Driver example using NativeAOT

    https://github.com/VollRagm/KernelSharp Based on ZeroKernel, so again driver only.

  • Cosmos

    Cosmos is an operating system "construction kit". Build your own OS using managed languages such as C#, VB.NET, and more!

  • Singularity-OS

    Microsoft Research Singularity RDK 2.0 Source

    Have you studied Microsoft's SingSharp kernel yet? I have not yet but might dive into comparing it to RoseOS. Thanks for the links.
