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.

Well, although there are some random Aero crashes, Aero mainly crashes when running old games and other things running in full screen which do not use DirectX (or at least not the latest releases), so I bet I'm just not in the official test cases ;)

Also, I have an exotic GPU setup (Optimus), which further increases the likelihood of something breaking.

I've reported that on Microsoft's bug reporting tool, but they were not very helpful in terms of telling me who else I should contact if it's not their fault.

Anyway, I've switched back to using Linux as my main OS some months ago, so I don't care so much about that anymore. And as said before, I must admit that it breaks quite nicely, silently falling back to CPU rendering without a glitch.
