    As you can infer from christop, we have OS kernel developers among the regulars (or ex-regulars: haven't seen one of them in awhile) here. But writing one from scratch to be fully fledged and comparable with something like Linux is a different story from building on existing work as part of a team, possibly supported by a community of contributors and testers.

    Having said that, of course plenty (the vast majority?) of community projects start out as one-person projects, but perhaps LoneKernelWriter's method from post #1 of this thread of attracting team/community members could be improved.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    If the OP wishes to make a closed source fork of Unix from what is posted on this website; then, he/she should be expected to be sued till they are broke!
    And, then sued some more!

    You can not take GPL code and make it closed source code!

    When someone posts any code of any great length you have to consider it may be copyrighted and possibly as GPL code.

    Well, you can if you don't give it to anyone else

    Edit: I just read the OP... yeah you can't just take GPL code and close it in the way the OP suggests

    Yeah, multiple lines ending with : and not ;

    The space between = = shouldn't be there.

    More off-by-1 on the keyboard shenanigans.

    Got bored of reading after that.

    Good luck in court - Ultrix - Wikipedia
    I saw that DEC made Ultrix, but wouldn't it make more sence if DEC called there's Digix though and why do they have two Unix forks made by them with the other being Digital UNIX let alone what DEC OSF-1 is. Ultrix makes more sense for me to use than DEC if you knew what I wanted to call my computer company that would own the rights to it, but the matter is that DEC owns that name and not me.
