I've been reading /. for years but this is the first time I've ever wanted to post. My vote goes to Tanenbaum's MINIX and his excellent book on OS design and implementation. Not only was it a real OS you could run on your pre-historic PC, but you could see how it was written, and hope one day to emulate it yourself.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
