Operating System Development
I was thinking why not create a OS? So that I did. Or I am about to do it. I researched a bit on the topic and found that the only limitation was the fact that I installed Visual Studio 12 RC2 (this did not allow for me to use Cosmos). When I realised that I would have to use my old HP laptop (as I am currently wearing a Macbook Pro as my laptop) to develop using Visual C#, I thought that I might as well go about it the traditional way using C and Assembly, but I decided that I would rather use Cosmos, to start with and get a feel of it.
Assembly/C will be the next time I am going into operating system development. Currently I have no goals other than to learn from it. I don’t think I will ever distribute any of it. I would however like it to be compatible for some netbooks, so it should only load up with a browser (but that would be in late development, I think I will start up with command-line only - I also need drivers etc.) That would of course be a bit like ChromeOS, but it would be mine.
In other news I think I somehow ruined an old motherboard’s IDE cable-port. Whenever I disconnect the IDE cables it will boot, but when I connect my harddisks it won’t. I will try to connect some SATA harddrive, but I am only in possession of two of those, so I will look around and see what I can find in my current desktop computer, I might be lucky! Anyway, I am off to learning.
