WSL, WSL2? Whine? :mrgreen:

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. I meant here in this forum, among hobby OS developers.

Project Update: I know I may seem indecisive, but this last week I have gone back and forth on what to develop. I soon decided a microkernel based OS named NexOS. It is my dream OS. It will try to be as fast as possible, stable, and secure. Some services, namely, object and driver management, will be in kernel mode to improve performance. This OS will be truly good!

Whatever you think is great, IS good if you make it good. There a Pros for a microkernel (ok there are Contras, too, but life isn't perfect.)

Now you need a kernel. I think you already mentioned it, but I forgot: Which architecture are you developing for? x86 32bit? or x86 64bit? Legacy BIOS or UEFI?

Greetings
Peter

Currently, 32 bit and 64 bit x86. It will be booted with GRUB. I plan on making an EFI application soon also. I plan on porting it to either MIPS or PowerPC, or perhaps IA-64.

it's popular among me. :D despite I am not a fan of posix/unix, I think, for targetting ARM SBCs, where enthusiasts are already used to linux(only), it would be nice to provide familiar tools for them. at least CUI programs (because linux GUI "systems" are far behind the bearable for me :mrgreen: ).

have you noticed as well? :mrgreen: it's a pretty well discoverable truth over here, that the more we talk and plan, the less we do. :)
