i'v Tryed MenuetOS For 40 Days UPTIME and it's running just like Cement

But:

-IS it Secure ( i mean is a C Based OS Less Security than asm OS ?) ?

-why most of the OS'S they pick C not asm eg: ( win, Linux, QNX...) it must be some reasons right ?

-is there a chance on M OS that could be a very Powerful OS or it's just for Fun and Fasm Tests?

Thank you.

Security has more to do with how its been written, not what its written in.

I won't admit it but (Wink) C/C++ is more portable than asm. But Linux does have parts written in asm (IMO unfortainly mostly GAS syntax, it would be better with intel/fasm syntax).
And some people find it easier to code in C/C++, personally I prefer assembly, becuase I can't stand all these type casts (but still I'm learning java -- which basically is C++ but more "objectized", I'm a living contradiction Razz )

your right guys, Shocked the problem that i was looking for some NEW OS 1 year ago.. and i'm trying my best to agree about M OS to be used on a News Agency that will use it for digital Signature and Encrypt/ Decrypt Stuff


But until now.. still not sure.. i mean i saw it look good and running fine but
i'm not into asm stuff so, i cannot have this des. alone..

and 1 more problem is 370 agent will use it and mostle 15% to 20% of them will access M OS at the same time. to upload and download files. less tham 1 mb. Confused Confused
