    i was bored so i started making palying around with HTML. Suddenly i came up with the idea with an OS.

    Is it a good idea? im great with HTML and if people want ill devote it to theme making....

    anyways the only thing is i may not be able to make it bootable unless and programming people out there wanna help make a bootable HTML reader. PM me

    BTW can i make a ipod touch theme with HTML? if i could i could make great themes.

    I would think this is impossible, plus I doubt you'll find someone willing to (possibly) risk their computer with this. If you DO make headway, however, boot it out of a USB drive. I mainly doubt this'll happen because HTML is static... there's not alot that can happen, JavaScript is where the dynamic things come together.

    Don't let me discourage you, though. Good luck!

    Right behind bgizzle on this one. You need to boot off of some kind of kernel. You need drivers, etc.

    Uber cool. But that was written in PHP and XML (according to the SourceForge page).

    I made something like this in C where you "install" it, and then can log in. But it's from the command line, and I don't know how to expand on it...
