COSMOS to be Linux based
My project to create a free and open source operating system with the name COSMOS, is going to be built on a Linux core. I have tried Nexenta on which I wanted to base this on originally, but hardware support was very limited, although its features were pretty amazing.
I am going to use TA-Linux on this one. It is a widely unfamiliar distribution, and is pretty much only the naked core of a Linux distribution. Pretty much like the sceleton for your own customization, and then remaster it. I have been using this distro earlier on and have found it to be pretty modular, pretty customizable.
Trust me when I say that I have tried both, FreeBSD 7 and OpenSolaris – they work great and they sure are superb operating systems in any aspect. But not intended to run on desktop computers. Linux however, seems to be better in that respect. So Linux it is.
And for the post yesterday, I hope you gathered that I was messing around. You should have noticed when I Rick-Rolled you…
I have been trying TA-Linux on my box just now, the one on which I want to do all further development – but I cannot install the system. The DVD drive is not detected as such, therefore no installation possible.
Looks like Gentoo is gonna be the candidate now.
