OPEN SOURCE PROJECTS OR GUI OS?

May 24, 2011 at 12:18 AM

I think the best way for me to get started would be to look at someones else's project and learn from it. So if you have one or know of one please by all means let me know. Thanks - Matt

Preferably GUI but any project will work. Thanks - Matt

Once I work out a few of the kinks, I can send you a copy of my drawing tools, which will aid you greatly in creating your OS (it's been a nightmare getting them working).

Even if it has a few kinks, dont worry about it, as long as I can get the general idea of how it works I am good to go. But please dont be afraid to send it to me. I need all the examples and source I can get to learn. Thanks - Matt

blah38621, you posted this a while back, "Well, as part of my gui project, I am working on making the equivelent of the WinForms framework available in Cosmos. (It will also include a window manager, that way I can minimize (and maximize) windows much easier.", I hate to ask but could you send me this gui project of yours and the WinForms framework, I am 13 believe it or not, and I am trying to get a head start on learning how to program a Operating System and this could really help. Please help. Thanks - Matt

Well, as i can't seem to find your email, I have put up 3 source files, (which work fully (except for a few special triangle cases) in my test environment, cosmos has problems with some of them XD) on my server, which can be reached here:

(No longer XD)

If you would tell me when you have them, I don't want to keep that link out there for the search engines XD (i don't have a fast enough upload speed to be dealing with indexing by a search engine)

Probably start with the simple demos. My projects are built around
testing kernels, drivers, file systems etc and probably are not the best
start.
