    When you want to develop your own OS - in which language(s)would you do it? And where would you receive the informations of OS programming?

    Where do you find SDKs to input/output samples?

    Please give much feedback.

    thx, vbzero

    Cool

    Hmm - I'm not very experienced in this level of programming.
    Maybe you can tell me where I can find some ideas, or
    examples how to create a new platform and so on,...

    thx, vbzero

    Hmm, I didn't use tutorials

    I didn't have Internet access when I did this (LONG AGO!). So what I did was take the boot area of a linux boot-disk and a windows boot-disk. I then checked for similarities. I didn't get very far with this. I got it to boot of a disk and say "Welcome to MOS v1.0". It then gave you a command line prompt and all I got around to was adding a help function!

    OK - thanks for your feedback - I'll try to find something about this on the net.

    In order to program an OS, you need to use C++, Assembly or a combination of both, (ie: program the kernel in assembly and the rest in C++).
