Hello,

While that is a recommended option, that is also outside the scope of the series. It might be covered as an advanced chapter, but it cannot be a part of the main series.

Hello,

The series was originally going to start with GCC as the primary target. However as the series progressed, I decided to just stay with Visual Studio for now until we get more into the series. Afterwords we can cover GCC.

So, yes, it is planned in the future. For now our focus is to complete the framework of the series first with our current tool chain. Afterwords we will work on porting to GCC and other tool chains. :)

Hello,

Currently I am considering splitting the series into two parts: One will contain the main chapters, the second will contain advanced topics, such as VBE, VGA, Maybe some SVGA, HDD programming, CD programming, ATAPI, I have been suggested SATA if we can cover it all, and possibly DLLs, PE Resource support in the kernel and how to turn the current system into a true microkernel.

The main series may continue like this: ...DMA->VFS/FAT12 Filesystem->Process Loading and Management->Multitasking->User Land.

This is the current plan so far. Suggestions and ideas are welcome of course :)

This sounds like a good idea.

What would be the oppertunity for user submitted tutorials?

Specifically, for a hardware project, I had to write a PS2 driver: both the hardware and software components.

While the keyboard tutorial does teach how to retrieve the raw data from the keyboard controler, it misses many details about decoding the raw data.

If I were to format what I have in a sutable way, would you mind including it?

Hello,

I would be more then happy to include it :D Because there is no easy way yet through the site to add resources, if anyone would like to add their own resources please feel free to email them to me and I will be sure to add them.
