OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

I don;t know how long you're working one your OS, but if your still struggling with long mode a might suggest doing things the other way around...

First write your OS inside another host OS, it can still be as original and exiting as you want. You can still create your own memory management-, treading- systems etc. But this way you can focus on the exiting parts of an OS instead of writing boring video drivers which probably have become obsolete once you finished them and won't be new and exiting anyway.

Once this is done you can always create a micro kernel that removes the need for a host OS.

This is the way I'm creating my hobby OS.
