I have always been fascinated by an operating system, the amount of work that operating system can do and what it can do is very impressive for me.
At a young age of 14 (1999) I dreamed of developing my own operating system. I started learning and after a year, I did build boot loader as well as a tiny kernel to handle input via keyboard, perform calculation and show output on the VGA screen. I could not spend enough time to take it further.
However, Later work life started and in 2004 I got a project to write an embedded operating system for a device. I agreed and developed a tiny operating system which had it’s own file system as well. It did not have any GUI.
So far I ended up developing two embedded operating system and one operation system just for hobby.
In the world of modern application development, I felt disconnected with computers. I wanted to connect with computer again and writing an operating system is the best way to get closer to computer again.
I am going to write a series of blog post about writing an operating system from scratch along with detailed explanation. Operating system will include following basic features:
If you have any wish list, feel free to comment below.
Stay tuned for the next blog post.
