Env X Os

Posted 28 October 2009 - 06:08 PM

Hello my name is Terry June and I made an organization a few months. Now I'm 13 and trying to get people to help. If you ever have designed graphics or is a programming C++, Java, Html can you give me suggestions to make a operating that runs smoothly and is easy to understand. Thanks!!! :ph34r:

What do you need the programmers for?
I know HTML & CSS, PHP, C, Javascript, & SQL. (some assembly&java)
Are you making it based off of Linux or are you going to make an entirely different kind of operating system?

I've once dreamed about making my own operating system, but I didn't try very hard.
I stopped trying, because there was a lot more involved than I had thought about.
I don't know how much you know about software or hardware, and I'm not sure what you've accomplished either.

I don't think there is an easy or smooth way to make an operating system unless you want to build it off of an existing operating system. (or an easy way of explaining how a computer works)
I would imagine you would have to understand C, assembly, hex, then binary. Then I think someone would need to know how to program drivers in a low level language like assembly. Then you would have to understand how hardware works, and how it communicates with software.
After all that then you can understand how a computer works, and you would be able to build a system.

I would be willing to help, but I'm not even sure where to start.
I would imagine the first step would be to make a kernel (like you mentioned on your website) that can interact with all the hardware using drivers.

Building an OS is one of the most difficult things in the world, and it can't be done alone, or even with a small team (unless you'd like to spend forever on it)

OS development requires deep understanding of computer hardware, knowledge of assembly language, and if you don't know how to program very well, it will probably come crashing down in flames.

Hope i don't sound pessimistic, but when I was 14 i tried the same stunt you did. EPIC FAIL!!!

I tried when I was 11... was not even able to start! I would suggest forgetting about making an OS and making things that are useful and if possible.. new ideas!
