    Operating System

    have you ever wondered what the code for an operating system would look like?
    i now it isnt and exe most of the time, more like the kernel is a .dll or whatever. and wich compiler would you use to create an operating system? C or C++ or assembly? other languages?

    I did until I saw the code for a toy OS and then the Linux kernel.

    >C or C++ or assembly? other languages?
    For the most part C and Assembly, but C++ is used in Windows from what I've heard.
