In my opinion the best choice for a programming environment if you want to reach the masses and get them coding would be Python and if the wxPython libraries came pre-loaded with the OS, fairly small redistributable programs could be easily passed around. There is the Boa Constructor IDE for wxPytho...

From what I understand, there is DOS\Win16, Win32 (Win 9x\ME), WIn32s (Win 2k\XP) and Win64.

Programs written in Win32 must go through a Win32s compatibility layer on 2k\XP machines so they will find what they expect.

just out of curosity why would you want to do this? Just for a hypothetical example, say a group of Mac enthusiasts got together and bundled a bunch of apps, alt-shell and hacked Dll's etc with ROS. to create a distro that emulated the Mac OSX look and feel right out of the box and call it ROX...

Although I also voted no and agree that a notepad app should be just a basic editor w/o all those bells and whistles, there is something to be said about a notepad for the 21st century... I mean a tabbed multi document interface. 15 instances of notepad opened all over my desktop is not my idea of g...

OK, forgive me if this seems ignorant but why must the boot sector be written to at all? I mean, ROS uses a FAT32 file system right? So, why not just use a kernel loader program similar to loadlin.exe which can load a Linux kernel from a DOS partition (loadros.exe) instead? In this way, to prep the ...
