You'd do better trying to search for the leaked source!

good luck. (and don't get caught)

Thanks. I got a copy of a C++ compiler and have started designing the GUI.

I guess if you are truly making your own OS, and not just a new shell for windows then you'll hae to program all your own apps to run nativly on your OS.

If you are just making a new shell to go over windows then I'd stick with either MS Office or Open Office.

Lol; maybe you should concentrate on getting it working first?

I imagine it is!

You have got me all junked up on the idea now too! I'm going to write a compiler as soon as I can now; both to learn C++ while I'm writing it and to have a language for an OS I may program at a later date.

However, whatever toil I have to go through to do it I will blame on you!

Well, I guess I'll add that to the list!

It's progressed a bit further, he wants it to be open source but he wants to sell it too.

If he sells it with the source code, one person will buy it and then sell it at about ten times less but he won't believe that there are people who'll do this!
