    Question making an OS

    I understand that it is very difficult, but I would like to have some information on how to make an operating system. I don't know where to start though. If anyone has any information, I will really appreciate it.

    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    first get a general book on OS need to understand what you're dealing with first and what you would be diving into. The sheer size of the project is scarry for a single person. I suggest this book
