OS Dev Series Tutorial 14: Basic CRT and Code Design

Yey!! Its here!!

This tutorial covers some basic groundwork of our system, and some C++ runtime (CRT) library routines, some basic debug output routines, and code design and stressing good programming practices that is required knowledge for large scale software. There is also a complete demo using NASM and MSVC++ for the system bootloader and kernel, with each of its programs (Kernel, Hardware Abstraction Layer, and CRT) as separate library projects for easier support for us using these as dynamic libraries later if we like. (Hal.dll, Crt.dll)

If you ever wondered how variable length arguments work, or even basic text output via a self developed printf() routine, this is for you... ;)
