New Mobile OS?

Now that Android is not fully open source anymore, shouldnt we build a new open source mobile OS? :)

Google has decided to take out some essential applications like mail and keyboard from the open source version of android. I see this as an opening to start a new open source Mobil OS ! :-)

Everything from scratch!

I want to make it all from scratch! OS, compiler, webserver, search engine... I know this is a crazy idea but i want to get around it all to get mor knowledge and to learn more about the single components.

Windows XP and IE 7 - What the hell is that??

Let me start with the beginning! Microsoft had two parrallel operating systems in the 90's. One for the kids which the called win9x and one for the grownups whivh they called WinNT. WinNT was a quite reasonable system which were functional and offent stable. It had some good security defaults and it could be used to do some acctual work.

Microsoft had also heard about the internet in the 90's, so they should ofcourse make their own browser. They picked som free library with functionality to view webpages and put a blown ui on top of that! IE was born! :-)
