I'm kinda curious on how operating systems were originally made. anyone have an answer?
assembly? setting gates and bits to switch flags for specific hardware?
that would be my guess...that is assembly to DOS to graphics.h to
Maybe read this?
what I meant was: what languages were used in the computer? I was too vague, sorry
That tells you what Unix was originally programmed with, and reprogrammed with.
A little assembly, but mostly C.
it was Human based manipulation of registers
a billion other little OSs in the late 70's and 80's (yes, that includes Windows, DOS Mac OS, linux, freebsd, etc)
Was Mac the first OS with a desktop and a mouse, instead of a command line and a keyboard?
The first personal computer was the Xerox Alto:
The Mac was based on this computer.
really unix came before dos?
Oh my gosh... are you serious?
yes, Unix came out years and years before DOS. DOS was a POS OS that did not even support networking or protected memory. Unix had both of those in the 70's.
Before C, all operating system were programming in assembly
