Well its been a long while since i said the thing (up there) about the surprise but sadly i have done nothing of what i wanted . So ill just write what i wnated to do and hopefuly someone will be willing to work with me (i hpe ).

So this is what i had in mind:

We have Seal2 which is very good and Seal3 thats in c++ and thats very bad. So now we have a big dilema - do we continue a new Seal3 in C or remake the Seal2. I thought that a remake of Seal2 would be great. So i wanted to do this stuff:

1.) Replace DLXGEN with the new SXLGEN, which is much smaller and works, and of course works on Windows and *nix.
2.) Create a dialer (ive been doing reserch on this and have some working code )
3.) After we get the Inet code working a recreate of the Seal Inet Browser to support the most used tags.
4.) Do a massive code cleanup and a basic exeption handling system
5.) 100% multitasking (ive seen this)
6.) Redo the TheDesktop in a XP style
7.) Create the SealAmp
8.) Port the new stuff from CubeOS
9+ i cant remember all the other stuff, i wrote in my book, ill have to look for it.

I know ive put the things quite high but weve got nothing to loose.

Edit: Forgot to write something important: Port to Windows and have a multiplatform net/graphics enviroment.

Yes, it'd be good if you could do this. I am snowed under with work right now (which is bringing in money at least, but leaves little time for other things).

Today i ripped out dlxgen and broke Seal into threads and implanted ( ) sxlgen. So now i can compile Seal with Sxlgen, i will have to rewrite some parts of the kernel like the api but i might get SXLGEN working like DLXGEN to the end of week. But only if i have time

How are you creating threads? Are you using the Intel TSS?

Ehhm, i think you misunderstand threads and multithreading.
These two words have a diffrent meaning.

threads - functions (or other stuff) that link to functions (or other stuff)
By threads i ment i had Seal broken up adn it was using functions that didnt exist ( hope you get that )

multithreading - somethin like multitasking but much better

Clear?

But threads are a component of multithreading. I don't know if I get exactly what you are doing though. Do you mean you split it up into switchable threads, or just split it up into different functions?

When you do impliment multiple tasks, will you be doing it with the i386 built in structures or with your own software?

The exact definitions are:
Thread - part of a process
Multitasking - multiple processes are sharing the processor time

When there is a threaded multitasking system, you have something like a process which contains 2 'subprocesses' and they share the processor time of that process.

D'accord?
