OSNews, Generic OSes It's recently been a year since I started working on my pet OS project, and I often end up looking backwards at what I have done, wondering what made things difficult in the beginning. One of my conclusions is that while there's a lot of documentation on OS development from a technical point of view, more should be written about the project management aspect of it. Namely, how to go from a blurry "I want to code an OS" vision to either a precise vision of what you want to achieve, or the decision to stop following this path before you hit a wall. This article series aims at putting those interested in hobby OS development on the right track, while keeping this aspect of things in mind.

I was thinking younger but there's no reason to be discriminating.

If you mean that I came across as being discriminatory apologies, wasn't my intention - I really need to be less colloquial when I write online, things do have a habit of getting lost in translation ;)

There does seem to be a big problem in the UK at least with the IT curriculum, obviously no school can teach their students about all operating systems and software packages but I think they could try to teach more theoretically and rely less on Microsoft for examples. After all if there's one place you shouldn't be blinkered it's at school.

And maybe a bit more OS theory would spark the imagination of the next Bill Gates - maybe not Bill, Linus? ;)
