Personally, its writing drivers and making a gui.

For me it's doing low-level things such as implementing my own interrupt handlers, CPU structures etc... That we do not touch when we are just programming a simple application on an OS.

Knowing that everything is my code, seeing that it's possible to actually make your own operating system from scratch, and being able to try out your own ideas for operating system design.

When you start writing an OS you do the minimum possible to get the x86 processor in a usable state, then you try to get as far away from it as possible.
