Default Making an OS

Hi,
I want to make an OS (stupid I know , but everyone can have thier dreams), does anyone know where I can find out how to program one, a tutotial etc. preferably with links to various tools included, any help is much appreciated, coz ive got no chance on my own (only 14 ). If you cant help me does anyone know where i can download a "blank" OS, one that will just load up and I can edit or add any features. any help is much appreciated

Thanks in advance.

Basic and VB don't really count either, if you are interested in serious programming. Try learning C.
