Operating Systems(design)


I have previously built my own computer and I would like to design a simple but effective op system, any suggestions?

Hi,

welcome to LQ. Could you give some more information? For example are you talking about designing a kernel and userland? Or coding? Or running an existing kernel? Or do you just mean you want to install some Linux distro and configure the desktop to your liking? The possibilities are endless.

I am talking about using a kernel with drivers and a gui system. I would like to know how to run prototype of a operating system to get started with designing a full op system

Well, in that case I think you've posted in the wrong forum. This forum is supposed to be about helping new Linux users. Where your question is about bottom to top OS design. I just checked, and I'm really not sure into which forum on LQ this question would fit.

Although, if you are interested in learning about how one particular OS (GNU/Linux) is built you may be interested in Linux From Scratch http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ . The is even a subforum here at LQ https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...om-scratch-13/.
