Did you catch that whooping cough too?by (Login Mikrondel)
Apparently it's going round. I caught something in Sydney; I'm in Thailand right now and this constant cough is getting ridiculous.
Anyway. Despite having myself described the possibility of writing an OS in QuickBasic, I think Galleon is perfectly justified in saying that this is impossible.
... Perhaps not technically impossible. But it's impossible that somoene would ever want to do all this. Galleon is being realistic, not ignorant.
Of course if co-operative multitasking is OK, or we restrict what functions the programs are allowed to use, it becomes a different problem.
