Youngest OSDever

All off topic discussions go here. Everything from the funny thing your cat did to your favorite tv shows. Non-programming computer questions are ok too.

Youngest OSDever

Post by jaihsonk »

Hey everyone! I just met a 14-year-old OSDever who wrote his first CLI assembly OS when he was 13.
I want to see how young we can get! Please, no names, just ages :D

I was also around 13, maybe even 12 when I started with OSdev. It is quite strange, but I really learned how to program on OS dev. But I will surely ever remember my hard beginning and my first super stupid post here "How to set up interrupts?" with question "Please give me a code which I will be sufficient to copy them to my operating system and using it I interrupts will work." Now I cannot even believe that I was able to wrote it :D

I was 10 when I started to get interested in osdev, though I was already interested in programming since I was 8. I still have some assembly files "I wrote" from that time, but the older ones (from when I started programming) are long gone.

That was a long time ago for me. It's awesome to hear about young OSDevers. Hope you are finding all the answers!

61. :mrgreen: I was 27 when I started. I didn't have access to a computer at 12 or 13. There were no bochs and no 32-bit open source C compilers at the time. I had to rely on an MSDOS assembler & linker when I started.

How did this turn into an "Oldest OSDever" topic? :lol:

I started around 2010, joined the forum in 2011. So that would be 11-12.
Whoever said you can't do OS development on Windows?
