I personally love COSMOS for prototyping OS ideas, and now that it has WIP GUI support, it is tons more useful.

The GUI functions a bit like HTML5's canvas, and only functions on emulators via the bochs API. Howevret, it would not be hard to change that.

Cool, I always thought it's an interesting project. But I can't really find out what their goal is, do they plan to create a complete operating system in the end, or is it meant to stay just a basis where you can build applications on?

Technically it is a full OS project, with semi-support for FAT and other filesystems. It can be built to an iso that boots with syslinux (it is not a linux kernel though).

It has support for debugging with visual studio through vmware, which is awesome.

And if you get the DevKit, you can change COSMOS itself in any way you please (the DevKit includes the COSMOS source code of the entire OS; not just the kernel).

Thank you, this looks a very interesting project and I haven't visited the COSMOS web site for many years!

I'm very comfortable with C# and once I get my own C++ kernel anywhere near stable, would like a C# JIT / AOT compiler to run fairly closely with the kernel itself, so I'll be having more of a look at the COSMOS project!

Thanks again,
Adam
