Collapse OS — Hardware Support

Below is a list of hardware configurations that Collapse OS is known to work on. Memory is the amount of memory, in KB, the machine has, or the minimal amount of memory tried if it's variable. Some machines have more than 64KB of memory, but we never use paging, so we say "64". Input/Output is the type of device used to interact with the machine. BLK medium is the type of medium being used for Block support. Self-hosting is whether Collapse OS can assemble and deploy itself from within that machine. "No" doesn't mean it can't be done, just that it hasn't been tried yet.
