Wow! A kernel functioning in only 380 bytes. What a proof of very cool hacking ability!  ;D

It's just a kernel. Unless you have M4D H4XOR SK1LLZ and can make an entire operating system + applications + GUI/CLI to fit on top of it, there's really nothing you can do with it.

It's still impressive. The smallest full-featured OS I know of is Contiki. I don't know exactly how small it is, but it can use as little as 2 KB of RAM.

....I don't think that ANY "minimalist" OS can qualify as being full-feature. : /
