Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?

Summary: small poll for my new operating system


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, and I’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 :-(.
