Hello everybody out there using minix -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing
since april, and is starting to get ready. I'd like any feedback on
things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat
(same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons)
among other things).

I've currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months, and
I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

        Linus (torv...@kruuna.helsinki.fi)

PS. Yes - it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have :-(.

C'est vieux et c'est très jeune en même temps. Longue vie à lui :)

Vous imaginez a quel point il devait être content quand il avait enfin fini sa première version ??


Déjà commencer par le début, la frustration , l'envie d'arrêter tout ... puis la prise de tête, toujours l'envie de laisser tomber, puis le premier résultat..voir que ça va le faire, voir le bout du tunnel..


Respect  Linus respect
