    If you have to ask, you aren't ready to do it.

    Scott is right. A good place to start might be getting into Linux. As you learn more about Linux, you could join some of the projects maintaining it and updating it. Linux is open source. You can learn how it works, and begin to write your own contributions.

    OS Development
    Have a chat with W.Gates,at Redmond.Learn how to make a fortune and corner the world market.Only need thirty years experience and 100,000 staff. :D

    Seriously,as Scott and Labman have told you the best way to learn about OS code,is to have a look at Linux.It's open source,i.e. anyone can 'add' to it.Bare in mind that there are different versions around,Red Hat,Mandrake,etc,all relating to different coders working in that project.You could set up 'My Linux' and get a few close friends to help.Visit and have a browse around.If you can write Linux style code then your laughing.

    I for one would use it!

    All the best to you,

    The purpose of an operating system is to act as a gobetween between the processor, and the hardware/software being run on it. As such, it takes commands issued by the software, processes them within the CPU and sends them out to the hardware.

    Lab and Nez's suggestions about looking at the Linux code is a good idea. Not sure, but I assume Linux is written in some form of C.
