OSNews, Generic OSes Now that you have an idea of where your OS project is heading as a whole, it's time to go into specifics. The first component of your OS which you'll have to design, if you're building it from the ground up, is its kernel, so this article aims at being a quick guide to kernel design, describing the major areas which you'll have to think about and guiding you to places where you can find more information on the subject.

Indeed. I'll correct this along with some English mistakes once I get access to some real internet connection (EDGE with locked ports is the new 56K).

When looking for examples, I've been highly displeased to discover that most operating systems which were said to be VM-based (like Inferno or JavaOS) were in fact nothing but a java virtual machine running on top of a regular C/C++ kernel, and have given up a bit too quickly apparently.

SharpOS was also an interesting project, but apparently development has ended.
