Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y There's no right way to do it, only ideas that are better than others in certain situations. But if you had the opportunity to head up the design of a new OS, one to Put Things Right, one that could be radical enough to varnish out those UI/X bumps that have clung on for years, but practical enough to be used every day, what would you design? How would you handle application management? What about file types and compatibility? Where would you cherry pick the best bits from other OSes and where would you throw away tradition? I've tackled this challenge for myself and present (an unfinished idea): KrocOS (warning: HTML5 site, will display without CSS in IE/older browsers). OSnews Asks: What would make your perfect OS?

A perfect operating system? That is an interesting question. Hmmm let me think. I would say one that can run almost any program you throw at it. One that is not vulnerable to viri or Trojans, one that is modular, one that is easily customizable, one that is always fast, one that you do not have to wipe your hard drive and reinstall every 3 months, one that is updated every six months or so, one that is very user friendly, one that has a worldwide community of users who are invested in making it better and helping those new to it, one that can be used on the oldest of desktops, one that you can put on a memory stick ant take with you, one that is cutting edge ALWAYS and finally one that is free.

Oh, yeah, I am already using it! Linux!
