What do you mean by "available"?

Freely distributable? Hmm, some of the FigForths fall in this category
(if you want to call them OS's), and OS/8 is there too.

Easily acquired? There are several disassemblies of CP/M-80 and Apple
DOS 3.3 floating around in various places, but these aren't the
"official" sources - they're a disassembly. The PL/M sources to CP/M-80
are also available, though I've never quite figured out how to go from
the PL/M to the executables.

You can get the source if you hand over enough $? Sure, lots of minicomputer
OS's fall in this category.
