Writing an OS is an extremely time consuming, difficult and long job. Microsoft takes years to write an OS with teams and teams of the world's best programmers. If you're new to programming there's no way you'll be able to do it. Fact.

And C is rubbish. Learn C++.

Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.

Start out writing a game. It's a self conatained operating system if you think about it.

No. C is better for OS's. For once malbuc87uk, I disagree :P.

who says he's going to make an operating system the size of windows? maybe he'll just make a text base one? and he's right c is better for os programming than c++.
Windows: A thirty-two bit extension and GUI shell to a sixteen bit patch to an eight bit operating system originally coded for a four bit microprocessor and sold by a two-bit company that can't stand one bit of competition.

Well either way he'll be able to choose which is better for him because by the time he gets to writing an os he'll know all about it.

What about C#. Is that good for anything? I'm learning C++ as my first language. I figured you know, it's got more symbols. C has 1 C++ has 3.

No, I just picked because, well I really don't know why I picked it.
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Core, MSI K8N Neo-4, 2x 512 Corsair Dual Channel, Nvidia Geforce fx 6600 256MB, 160GB HardDrive

Windows Vista Business Edition
