How to Build Your Own Operating System

How many operating systems have you ever used? Windows, Linux, Mac OS and many more can be added into your list. But you would be wondered after knowing this that you can add your own operating system at that list.
Yes, you are reading absolutely right. You can build your own operating system with built-in software, web browsers, office suite etc.
Benefits of using your own operating system than the standard OS
No doubt, the standard operating systems from the reputed companies are complete and perfect for the users in a whole. They built their OS considering about the mass people. But in real life, we work on some special part of computing and use only some particular components of the operating system. Rest of all remain unused and they are useless for a particular user.
Now, the question that arises is whether there is any drawback of using the standard OS. The answer can be both ‘No’ and ‘Yes’.
‘No’ because the standard operating systems are standard and any user can start their computing with it believing that they will get their required components inbuilt in that OS.
‘Yes’ because the useless components create extra loads on your hardware and make your machine slow. They also take an extra space in your hard drive and consume extra memory as well.
So if you have your resources limited, better choice is using an operating system that does not waste your resource.
Here is how to build your own operating system, suitable for your light machine.
