Nyan OS

Nyan OS is a minimal linux-based “os” that displays an infinitely looping nyancat animation.

Tha animation frames and basic drawing logic were taken from Kevin Langge’s NyanCat Telnet server project and rewritten into Go. I decided to rewrite it in Go because Go is a more familiar language to me, and because it means I can generate a single, statically linked, program to run as the init process.

Did this all in an afternoon or so of work, just for fun.
