Write Your Own OS

Hi ! This is the second part of my previous article Write A Simple OS Now !. Before moving on I must tell you that OPOS (for OPEN SOURCE OPERATING SYSTEM) is a project which is in its very initial stages started by me. I've uploaded the source files of the first release of OPOS. This release although , is no good for usage as an OS , it could serve as a good example for you if you are keen on coding your own OS. As PSC does not allow uploading of exe files you must download a small utility called bootable.exe from my homepage. This utility copies the boot sector code as well as retains the DOS file allocation table of the disk making it readable from dos. So for installing OPOS you must download it.

Below are a list of links I found over the time. Thought maybe you guys would want to check them out. Please Vote.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
