If you need a compiled compiler to compile compilers, how do you know that there's no spyware secretly propagating itself?
hex0 is "a hex assembler written in hex" -- basically several bytes of raw machine code "with a shitload of comments" which translates text to bytes
hex0 translates hex1which translates M0which assembles M1/hex2which assembles M2-Planetwhich assembles mes🆕 which compiles tinyccwhich compiles gccwhich compiles the OS!
@pho4cexa wow, that's hallucinating. 8 compilers, wherein 3 of them are complex and POSIX-only, just to bootstrap a free software system, is bad imho
I mean, even bootstrappable.org says there must be as few layers as possible
