_SIMPLE_ OS in C++

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to write a simple OS in C++ that prints one line of text to the screen? And if so, where can I learn to do it? Thanks in advance!

The very first version of linux reportedly wrote the letter "A" to the screen then halted.

Now, 15 years later, it still doesn't do much more than that...

lol funny.

I'd look into getting into the boot sector of a floppy to load up, then I'd study up on bios functions, cus that's all you'll have when you write it. also learn how to use the mmu, I'm fairly certian the os manages the mmu, am I wrong? even so you don't need to know how to use it actually depending on what mode the processsor is set to run, so that's another thing you need to look into, setting the mode of the pentium, and there ARE PLEANTY OF EM!! lol
