A.OUT is the "original" binary format for Unix machines. It is considered obsolete today because of several shortcomings. However, as it is extremely simple and supported by many compilers/assemblers, it may be a good choice if you're willing to develop your own format or have more information than 'raw binary' for your bootloader.
