[QUOTE=jbennet;1049646]Well, the whole reason computers exist as we know them, is because of the second world war (namely Colossus and ENIAC).[/QUOTE]
But I believe we can take it to a better end :)

I'd say MandarĂ­n, and second spanish

PD: I took english, but since english is your main... :P

I'd say reinstall yes or yes, because even if you delete all viruses
(and that's not probable), windows its already harmed, and dont tell its not windows because its the only OS with virus-support :P

Now off course you probably have files you want to back up,
you can do so with puppy linux its a live linux its a very small distro;
download it in other PC.
burn it.

Use it with the ill computer
it will run in no time and then you can back up all you need
After it format all disks and reinstall.
PD: Give your friend an antivirus before setting files back to the computer, some will probably keep infected.

:p I'm wondering the same

[QUOTE=albertjone125;1049570]The designing of smart OS systems and more security check while making a program on specific program may be considered then it will relieved to some extent.[/QUOTE]
I'd apreciate if you could explain that in more detail, I didnt understand.

Hi,

Well, I know of 3 options

List from the easier to the harder option;

1- suse studio
2- [url]http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/[/url]
3- Program your own OS

PD: if you chose the last one join my group [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/forums/group20.html"]here[/URL]

Ying_Yang

You can also join the OS group :)

control panel > networking > social groups
it's called Programming Revolution

Ying_Yang

I've created a group just for it

To find groups:

control panel > networking > social groups
its called Programming Revolution ;)

[QUOTE=adatapost;1046057][URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaOS"]JavaOS[/URL] - JavaOS is an operating system with a Java virtual machine as a fundamental component. It is developed by Sun Microsystems. Unlike Windows, Mac OS, Unix or Unix-like systems which are primarily written in the C programming language, JavaOS is primarily written in Java.[/QUOTE]

Thank you a loT :)

Hi,

I like the modularity of java but I wonder what low level custom functions it has, since I' am considering to create an OS, and we all know in high level its imposible to control the hardware eficiently. :-/

so I wonder if there is a way to use low level with java.

I'd say in line 116 rather you ended with an extra ")" or u didnt use indentation for it, check it out.

[QUOTE=ddanbe;1044048]Did you know that in English there are about 30 different meanings of the affirmative word [B]yes[/B]?
A story to illustrate:
A man comes home from his work, says hello to the wife, installs himself in a seat with a newspaper and a drink.
Two options:
The wife says: " [I]Darling, are you going to mow the lawn?[/I] "
The wife says: " [I]Darling, I'm taking a bath will you come and rub my back?[/I] "
In both cases the man will say " [I]yes[/I] ".
The moment we have a computer who understands the difference between the two affirmations, we have something that is close to an ideal computer.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, indeed that's one way to really improve computers, that field its not been studied much, that's why I'm thinking maybe that can be done if the programming languages could understand the programmers like that... then we can have much smarter OS.

I'm thinking of something to create to improve computer's classic software, maybe a higher level programming language than the actual, or a smarter OS, or maybe make expert systems improve with AI, etc ...

On the other hand, Computers nowadays can be very helpful, but also can be used to steel information, terrorism, and other crimes.
If we do make better computers, they will eventually fall in the wrong hands, and be a more efficient tool for bad.

How do you think we can prevent it ?

I believe there might be a way to prevent it, but not by programming security policies, because that can be easily get passed through back doors.

I believe there must be a secure way to make better computers :)
What ideas do you guys have ?
