Hello everybody out there using minix –
I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big andÂ professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. Â This has been brewingÂ since april, and is starting to get ready.
I’d like any feedback onÂ things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhatÂ (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, andÂ I’d like to know what features most people would want. Â Any suggestionsÂ are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them :-)
PS. Â 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 neverÂ will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.
Ad agosto 1991 viene rilasciata la versione 0.01 di Linux, a gennaio 1992 arriva laÂ versioneÂ 0.12 che è la prima stabile. La 1.0 arriverà nel 1994 ed è questo l’anno in cui ho iniziato ad usarlo.
