I am working on a project called DripOS. It is currently extremely boring and basic, with only bare support for things. I have userspace programs running and other coolish features I guess. I have been working on this project since 2018 and I started with no prior knowledge of C. After 1 rewrite, I now have enough support to run basic userspace programs. I am designing my own Userspace -> Kernel interface and I plan on writing most software myself (even though it will take a stupidly long amount of time). I will however port things like GCC, since writing a C compiler is a lot of work and I'm too lazy to put that much work into one thing, I prefer smaller amounts of work in lots of subprojects.

Features:
SMP
Userspace
ELF loading
SATA disk support
FIlesystem read and write support
IPC (using my own interface)
Basic window manager that does almost nothing
Userspace ability to read keyboard scancodes
(Note: most of these features are extremely minimal and basic and are not enough to do advanced things with)

Great! That's already quite far developed.
I think next good thing would be to develop the window manager a bit further.
And if you want more cool stuff, perhaps write a little game for your OS.

Greetings

Wait... I thought I posted this in the project list thread...
That's weird.
I was having some login glitches maybe that's why..
