    Cool Operating System

    I admit I am a child, but, with the help of someone else, plan on starting a NEW Opersting System. I am learning C/C++, an am asking you for suggestions. And by the way, please don't go around saying this is impossible; NOTHING is impossible.

    lol dude at your age and level it's impossible. if you put a team together including yourself and other coders you could prob do it but if you still don't even know algebra then theres no chance =(

    >NOTHING is impossible.

    No, quite a few things are impossible for humans. Remaining underwater for 24 hours with no breathing apparatus (and living to tell the tale) is one . Writing an operating system if you are just learning C/C++ and are planning to do it in Java is another.

    Sure.....

    I'm saying I MIGHT do it in Java----I'm way more falmiliar with it, but C++ Is more customizable. ANYWAY, I still have no suggestions!

    Alright, since you're taking requests. Can you make it just like Windows XP, only release it as freeware. That'd screw Microsoft.

    Well if he made it EXACTLY like XP, that would violate some laws, wouldn't it? Then he would go to jail. Wait a minute, he is under 18, so by American law he'd get away clean and not go to jail... hmm....

    Talking Why Not?

    Actually, I'd planned on it looking like XP, w/o the Windows logo
    (HA thats ugly anyway) and having a similar start menu, only without such a code like that to help resist the everyday viruses and crashes...

    I agree Microsoft is a bad company that is far from a true good monopoly but thats just because of Bill Gates!

    Hrmm...

    Let the kid try. If he doesn't trust us, he'll sooner or later notice that he can't write any good OS at his level.

    I guess you don't want to face the truth. I'm sorry for you.

    Lets put it this way, if it is a question you have to ask, don't even try. What you want to do would take A LOT of time, skill, and intelligence. Unless you are some sort of boy prodigy, it isn't gonna be possible. Wait a while (as in years), and ask again.

    an OS in java? ummm .... that takes a lotta work because youre gonna have to write a java interpreter in some other language so you can use java. then you have to make the interpreter run and all that on your OS.

    im sorry, but youre not gonna code an OS that looks like windows xp. linux looks as good as windows xp, but linux is a HUGE project with TONS of people in it. the other OS's except the ones that are as big as linux, are usually small, and all they have is a prompt.

    you have to know assembly to code an OS unless youre planning on using someone elses bootloader and stuff like that so thats another reason its impossible (unless, of course, if you know asm).

    what im trying to say is that you dont need to waste your time.
