Linux - gui
 
hello guy's

i have started to create my own LINUX from the help of Linux From Scratch. And now I am also planing to create my own GUI for it.

Is it possible to create it?
If yes then which language should i prefer?
Or can i get a sample GUI from any of the earlier LINUX versions to study it and create my own?

I am not a developer, nor a designer but I know Gnome is done using the GTK libraries and KDE is done using QT libraries.
I think for coding they use C, C++, python and other languages.
For some reason I get the impression and think there are more applications GTK base than there are qt base

Right now the display server in Linux is having major changes and soon I believe the majority of users will be using wayland instead of X11, another group of users might be using Mir.

If you are interested in light weight graphical interfaces you should look at Enlightenment 17 (Soon to be 18)

I think what you have in mind is awesome and I want to wish you good luck on your project.

Given enough skills and time, sure.

The language you're comfortable with.

Open Source Software means you're free to download, view and modify source code.

Linux from Scratch has a few additional projects, including Beyond Linux from Scratch. BLFS contains instructions to add a GUI.
What do you mean by "my own GUI"?

So you plan to write a display server (instead of using X11 or wayland...), graphics tool kit and full suite of graphical applications? I really don't think it is possible for a single person to do this sort of thing unless they are willing to dedicate their entire life to it. I would strongly suggest making use of already existing software. See BLFS as already suggested.
