    Thumbs up Visual Basic OS ?

    Does anyone know of any Operating Systems that are made with Visual Basic and are open source. I know one of them is NeoShell (http://neoshell.sourceforge.net) but for some reason i can't download it. Does anyone know of any more ?

    oblio is right that is a shell not an os. a shell is an aplication. and realies on another os to function (like win 3.1 relied on dos)
    an os would be able to interface at the machine level ( with 101010101 10101 and all that fun stuff) and at the user level ( with a GUI) i suggest you find a tutorial about that if you want to know more.

    you could probably program your own shell/os if you wanted one and then of course it would be open source

    As oblio said, it isn't an OS. It looks to be a shell..

    The Windows that you see can actually be changed. There are a few different shells out there, try here if your interested...

    Also, you can change your shell to progman.exe for that good old Win 3.x feel..

    I don't use them. I used to, but they kept crashing and stuff..

    One of them was evil, and wouldn't change the theme I had on, and I was just testing it out, and it had this rather disgusting picture on there... had to format the computer to get rid of that one... not fun....

    But that was a while ago, so they might be more stable now.... but unfortunately, I can't remember the names of the ones I've tried.. I'll think about it and if I remember, I'll tell you...

    There is one beatiful shell called LiteStep. The screenshoots are unbeliable, and it's quite usable too. But I rather stick with the old original shell because I don't have time to fool around and get used to a new one. But I've tried LiteStep on win2000 and I can recommend it. Try it out, and tell us what you think!

    I'd suggest Talisman, they're on the second version now I think. It lets you edit the theme yourself, with a little programming knowledge you can make the shell do whatever you want. It's neat.
