I have been wrote program since 1989, and I have try BASIC, Pascal, C and
C++. The only language that increase my productivity is C++, because of
code reuseable. Well, I know a OS is very hard to write, I don't mind to
work on a very small part, such as compiler writing. How can I know more
about your OS?

I don't mind to learn a new language. How can I know more about this

Yes, I understand that. In fact, when I write a small OS for 8088, all I
have is the OS, no compilers, no assemblers, no applications. So, I need
to write compiler, assembler, and more for that. It is a long way to run.
Therefore, I think if I have a C compiler, then I can port most software
from other platforms. I am sure a C or C++ compiler will make your OS more
close to perfection.

Yes, please. How many persons in you project team currently?
