Nyan OS (Or: Experiments in minimal linux images)

So, I got bored today, and decided to make a minimal linux image with just an initrd and a kernel. This initrd displays an animated NyanCat. It’s a bit silly, tbh, but I thought it’d be fun, and it was.

You can get an iso at This URL

I’ve also been playing with iPXE, so I made it so that you can load it using that, using the command chain load http://amanda.darkdna.net/toys/nyan-os/dl/nyan.ipxe ( Not advised unless you trust your internet and randoms on the internet. )
