A Very Critical Look at OS Re-creation Projects
There are at this time, a number of what I would term 'OS re-creation projects' (OSRs) in active development. These are OSes that attempt, by varying degrees, to re-implement the features of another operating system. In this article, I'm going to explore some of issues surrounding projects of this type. In the second half of the article, I apply these observations and examine two example platforms (Amiga and OS/2) and the related re-creation OSes.
