I need a programmer that will implement a design I'm working on for a new
DOS and File System. I'm not proficient in programming on this level, so
you'll have to bare with me. This new DOS is not a single entity in itself
(although it could be), but it is merely the base of another OS project I'm
Characteristics of the DOS (more info if you're interested):
It will NOT be using 8.3 filenames.
It will NOT be using a FAT system.
It will be written in ASM, PowerBasic, or Oberon. (Not C++, but Java might
be a consideration).
It will be 32bit.
It needs to run DOS, Windows, and Macintosh programs. (Not necessarily a
primary goal for earlier versions)
It will have Linux similar networking protocals.
It will multi-task and multi-thread.
Needs to be able to recognize today's standard hardware such as CD and mouse
without the need of running separate commands to initiate them.
A special Virtual Memory set up that I'll explain later.
This Disk Operating System will have a GUI to sit on top of it, but that is
So in other words, it really isn't just another DOS, but a base for a bigger
project. Also, the most important component is the file system itself.
If you're interested, or can contribute any ideas, contact me at
