If writing an OS, be sure to use the linux Kernel (2.7.9 if possible). Linux is the best way for the beginner to write an OS, and you don't even need to make a GUI! (Unless you want to.)

Yeah. Why don't you use the linux kernel? And get all ur software from GNU. Its really much easier.

Yeah, Linux kernel is easier to use. Try that. C++ is fun, but I never got into it.

BTW, I am not a software programmer at all, so I can't be of much assitance here, so anyway, I'll go back to my hardware knowledge hole I live in. If you need to talk about PC parts, ask me about those, otherwise, I am staying out of this.
