can i make an os using visual basic??/

Re: os using vb 80 80

No,

Visual Basic requires the .NET Common Runtime Libraries from Microsoft and as these are not available from the start a VB.NET OS would be missing Most/All required Components

Re: os using vb 80 80

No.

the .NET framework itself is written in C++ (C and C++ are whats used mainly for operating systems, some assembley too)

C and other unmanaged languages are used for the O/S as it compiles to machine code (binary) not an intermediate language to be interpreted (as is the case for .net and java)

Manages languages like .NET are also much much slower than say, C

Re: os using vb 80 80

No that is not possible.
Again it is not possible to write an OS using a single language.
