A command shell you mean??

I think an OS that did that would be well out of the scope of these competitions :)

i agree. not that it wouldn't be fun, though...

flashdaddee.com has a few members in the operating system forum developing simple os's. one even wrote a tutorial on the first steps.

go to the download page

this web site is the site of a guy at flashdaddee's operating systems' forum. if you look on the top of the operating system forum, on the walkthrough thread sticky, you can see its progress as its being written.

unfortunately, it doesn't get far into the development into an os. however, the members at flashdaddee have progressed a ways beyond the walkthrough.

I read about a professional OS, I forget which one, but it doesn't matter, the OS only had 900 lines of assembly code, the rest was C/C++.

Some vendors want to be able to port their OS to different architectures. This is the way that I will go too, later on.

I like the idea of the microkernel as well, just have a minimal kernel that sends remote messages to subsystems which perform kernel mode jobs.
