Post subject:  My Operating System Triangle (I hope to make)

I'm hoping to start a Company & then make an Operating System & Games. Yes it looks crappy & yes it's not very good detailed. I just want to make this one day. Please don't post negative, flame or insult Posts.

With the economy the way it is that is going to be really hard. I work at a small computer shop and business was so slow that the head tech was told not come in.

Offtopic Comment
Here we go again

It looks "childish" because I have NO experience in making Operating Systems & I'm crap with using Paint. And if you read my Post it'll say "Please don't post negative, flame or insult Posts."

Yeah, I know the Fact that it'll cost money & will be extremely hard to make it.

if you read my Post you will see that it wasn't an insulting,negative or a flame Post.

i simply asked it looks childish , is that your target audience (children) (you could be making it for kids , how do i know ?)

No, I'm not making it for Kids. Re-read my reply of your first Post. I'm not going to be in a Flame-War this time, so please try preventing Flame-Wars or you'll get everyone into trouble.

Not flaming, honest to god not flaming, but that mockup is completely unusable. The buttons are way oversized, the triangle doesn't offer any insight into what it does, Switch Users is on the wrong side of the screen (it should be on the right with other adminy type tasks, if your sticking to the thought that the left is the menu and the open windows), the taskbar on the left is far too big which would minimize open window space.

This is not a flame post. These are honest suggestions.

I told you that I'm crap with Paint, if this Operating System does get released then it won't look like that.

Then what's the point of creating a mockup image of something you don't expect to follow in the slightest? :| Just curious...

Umm... you were to go ahead with this what would you base it on, linux etc...

You could hire some one to do the art.

Don't be so mean to him, guys - then maybe he'll chill out.

Yeah, if he could get it too work it would be alright.

I don't see anyone being truly mean to him, I just see people giving honest criticism. :\

I guess what you are trying to make would be very good for Netbooks!!!

Lets just not say anything if there is nothing nice to say.

Corpse, what to you intend to base this OS on? Ill offer to help make some programs.

Post subject:  Re: My Operating System Triangle (I hope to make)

It looks nice, GUI needs some work for ease of use, but otherwise, a nice concept picture, I like the logo you designed for your OS. What lang are you going to program it in?

Come on Eddie! I wanted to do something like this in Third Grade, Corpse is allowed to have dreams too.

You know I may think a guy has bad sense in clothing but I'm not going to go up to him and say "your shirt is ugly".

mbl: The only operating system he could base it off of, is Linux. Windows, if he based off of, would be illegal, and Microsoft could beat his ass.

ReactOS?
It can already run Firefox 3 - Although It does you very little good as ROS has poor net support at the minute.)

Post subject:  Re: My Operating System Triangle (I hope to make)

You could write your own OS... but if your paint skills reflect your coding skills...
You need like 2 years at the university...
Or you could steal MinuetOS code-> but that still involves some programing knowledge...

Post subject:  Re: My Operating System Triangle (I hope to make)

I had this thought once to! (Making an OS)

Here is a great tutorial and sample kernel I found when I was researching. It's text only, so if you find this difficult, writing a GUI is alot harder.
Full tutorial: http://www.bbs.osdever.net/bkerndev/Docs/intro.htm
Sample kernel + source: http://www.filefront.com/14939361/bkerndev.zip
(The sample kernel is found under bkerndev\Sources\dev_kernel_grub.img in the archive. You can mount it under VPC).



Hope this helps.
