Looking for OS

OS_DREAMEROS_DREAMER Member Posts: 10
I'm looking for free, Open Source, SMALL, may be with or without GUI, multitasking OS for PC (no FreeBSD, may be a shell for dos).

The reason I wont a small open source OS is I wont to learn how an os load a real EXE and then do the multitasking (I know the theory but I whant to see it as a source).

If you know one please post a reply. Thanks

    There was only one I ever recall running across was back in the early 1980's, called MDOS. It was multi-tasking with multi-session capabilities... it was also propritary, and I doubt you'll find it on the web in an open-source form. Sorry.

    There is a free, open-source MS-DOS compatible OS out there. It's
    appropriately called FreeDOS, and can be found at:
    http://www.freedos.org

    FreeDOS is not multitasking, as far as I know, however.

    You may want to poke around on:
    http://www.thefreecountry.com/
    or
    http://www.freemm.org/

    Maybe there's something there for you?
