If you judge an os by its syscalls...

Many kernel developers assign syscall numbers sequentially in the order that they implement the corresponding features. Hence Linux and Syllable kernel's syscall #0 is "read()" followed by #1 "write()" - basic console IO. MenuetOS syscall #0 is "Define and draw window". Shows their priorities right from the outset! ;)

Other MenuetOS syscalls include "Drag'n'drop", "Window skinning" and "3D api".

I wish I had not seen that file.

Talk about building a house by buying the furniture first. Ugh...
