OSNews, Generic OSes So you have taken the test and you think you are ready to get started with OS development? At this point, many OS-deving hobbyists are tempted to go looking for a simple step-by-step tutorial which would guide them into making a binary boot, do some text I/O, and other "simple" stuff. The implicit plan is more or less as follow: any time they'll think about something which in their opinion would be cool to implement, they'll implement it. Gradually, feature after feature, their OS would supposedly build up, slowly getting superior to anything out there. This is, in my opinion, not the best way to get somewhere (if getting somewhere is your goal). In this article, I'll try to explain why, and what you should be doing at this stage instead in my opinion.

Obvious and mundane

I appreciate the author took time to write this article, but I'm sorry to say this article is obvious and mundane. There is really nothing interesting or insightful, just a list of motivational steps.

From reading the article I just get the feeling the author does not know much about operating systems design, but he tries to look clever and gives some advice to would be operating system developers from a lame user's prospective.
