Mr 7 desperately wants to write an operating system. He wants to build a computer as well, but totally from scratch, none of this getting chips manufactured elsewhere business, or buying drives or cables. None of us have any idea how to achieve that, so at the moment the focus is completely software.
He has written his first ‘operating system’. I did point out that as it runs on Windows, it isn’t an operating system. This, apparently, is a small detail.
It is a script which allows you to type various commands and alter various settings, and he would love for you to try it:
Please feel free to download it and try it out, but please, only if you are comfortable with using a command window and aren’t expecting a nice graphical interface and don’t mind killing off your Windows Explorer!
Here are his instructions:
Hi Please read all text
so the commands are
note:don’t switch user if every day operating system
If you use unknown_command remember it only effects once and then does not effect
If you want it to be your every day operating system
Put the operating system in your downloads
Extract the zip
Create a shortcut of planetorange.cmd
Put the shortcut in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
and restart, logoff or shutdown
your pc and your done
If you want to be able to use it but do not want it as your every day operating system
Put it in downloads
Extract the zip
and to use the operating system run planetorange.cmd
if you accidentally click the red x then press Ctrl + alt + del
then click taskmanager and press file then new task and enter explorer.exe
Have Fun! If you do try it out, let us know what you think. Mr 7 would love to have ideas for improvement.
