I think your comments are discouraging and it is the last thing we need in our small dev community. The dude has DONE something. Granted, it's not a new OS. But it is at least something that some people think is cool enough that they've given Raindolf an award for.
If you can DO better, DO it BEFORE you criticize. I think we do too little and criticize too much.
Someone build something cooler than AnanseOS (like Ubuntu is arguably cooler than Debian for lovers of desktop enhancements or Centos is again arguably cooler than RedHat)
That off my chest, what i would have expected is we asked the dude for his modifications, suggested improvements or submitted patches. If he throws those changes away without taking a look at your code or giving his thoughts about why he can't accept your changes, then you have earned the right to criticize.
There's also the argument of not reinventing the wheel, which i believe is something we are pretty familiar with. If you haven't used an idea or two from stackoverflow or similar website for your project, hands up!
Let's keep the vim up and try to only criticize constructively...

The fact is that linux is more portable than minix. What? I hear you say. It's true - but not in the sense that ast means: I made linux as conformant to standards as I knew how (without having any POSIX standard in front of me). Porting things to linux is generally /much/ easier than porting them to minix.
MINIX was designed before POSIX, and is now being (slowly) POSIXized as everyone who follows this newsgroup knows. Everyone agrees that user-level standards are a good idea. As an aside, I congratulate you for being able to write a POSIX-conformant system without having the POSIX standard in front of you. I find it difficult enough after studying the standard at great length.
My point is that writing a new operating system that is
closely tied to any
particular piece of hardware, especially a weird one like the
is basically wrong. An OS itself should be easily portable to
platforms. When OS/360 was written in assembler for the IBM
25 years ago, they probably could be excused. When MS-DOS was
specifically for the 8088 ten years ago, this was less than
IBM and Microsoft now only too painfully realize.
Writing a new OS only for the 386 in 1991 gets you your second 'F' for this term. But if you do real well on the final exam, you can still pass the course.

We did a base-n crypto analysis on category6 servers some years ago using kernel ciphering processes. The same applied to a work I did at N.A.S.A some years ago. That said, I have a strong background in electrical engineering and protocol analysis. I eat engineering basically, I have managed to build a lot of processors to take advantage of some of this so called lame designs. It is kind of cool coding a partially-monolithic kernel in a somewhat water-crimson VA 234 trajectory. How does a semaphoric design in kernel rendering for most part impact satellite based processors and their design flaws? I am working on a significant calculand for encrypting the kernel image of most linux kernels. Anyways, I met with Torvalds some years ago and consider him to be a fairly intelligent guy; His design is ok. When designing images, we normally compile some base code in assembly and try to port it through various simplex running processes. I like kernel design a lot . Archzillon, have you built core DX-BX make-overs in operating systems before? I mean it is pretty lame and I expect every operating systems student to know this kind of stuff. You come of as having some knowledge of kernel design..An in-depth knowledge of kernel design is good. I am currently building a kernel and I want to include a multi-process , scalable and more robust inter-cognitive design to the whole core. Also I am writing the TCP/IP stack from scratch and including the new hyper-modulated multi-core protocol stack. That is to enable quick routing of packets using ipv4 and ipv6.

My only advise to all ESP Rain. Do what you have to do well, not what others want you to do. Peace and keep coding ...
Don't give a RAT ass to what people think about you man. They hating on you, it's part of human growth process so appreciate it, and keep moving. If nobody is hating on you, then you are doing something wrong. DO what is right for you. We got your back.
