Hello everybody out there using minix –

I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and

professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing

since april, and is starting to get ready.I’d like any feedback on

things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat

(same physical layout of the file-system(due to practical reasons)

among other things). I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40),and

things seem to work.This implies that I’ll get something practical within a

few months, andI’d like to know what features most people would want. Any

suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them 🙂

PS. Yes – it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.

It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never

will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s

all I have :-(.
