17 years ago, today:

Hello everybody out there using minix - I'm doing a (free) operating
system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for
386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting
to get ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in
minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the
file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things). I've
currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I'll get something practical within a few months,
and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any
suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

PS. Yes it's free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT portable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably
never will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I
have :-(.
