Project Description

Unify OS


This project aims to, using GPL libraries and so, create an operating system with the ability to support Windows/Mac/Linux drivers and programs. A simple and completely legal approach. Here are what the parts will be built off:


Windows
------------

This part will basically be built off of Wine, the open source compatibility layer for Linux.



Mac
-----

As we know, Apple has licensing restrictions. So to get by this, GPL licensed libraries and software must be used. For example, GNUStep and Darwin are used.



Linux
-------

Since Linux was open source to begin with, Ubuntu will be the entire foundation of the OS.



If anyone is willing to aid in this project, they are welcome. I have a small budget each month, so bear with me. I am also completely open to suggestions. Note that development on this project has yet to be started. I just thought I'd put a few pointers out there.


Cheers,

Noah Bangs
