Operating Systems

Recommended Posts

Most often C, which is then compiled to machine language.

Of course the exact boundaries between "Operating System" and everything else are kind of blurry so it's hard to really make any general statements.

the actual heart of the operating system, the kernel, is the only thing that really is specially coded.

Generally the Kernel is done in C+ or even C# now, the rest of the operating system is done based on the OS creator, Windows and Mac use C+ and/or VBscript, while Linux mainly uses Bash, Python, Boa etc....

There are relatively few C++ kernels and no C# kernels.

Windows is mostly C and C++, OS X is mostly C and Objective C, Unices are mostly C.
