Oops, a mistake, it meant to be style.

I don't see any BSDs either.

Perhaps he meant "style" but simply mistyped?

Talking about which existing popular OS it should resemble doesn't say much about it. Wouldn't it be better to talk about the actual issues like for example what the whole point of the OS is? Why should that OS exist? What would it do differently from the already existing ones?

It would take you years to build a Windows compatible system, cut that out, neither Mac their APIs are highly sophisticated and is built by a team of excellent programmers, Windows 1.0 was released in 1985, it has taken 29 years for them to come to this stage. If a team highly experienced programmers can take 29 years what you (possibly a beginner) will take? Don't be lost in the misconception that we're going to be in your team and work with you, we have our own life and jobs, It's better you develop a custom system or go with POSIX (With POSIX Compatibility you will already have top class apps like binutils, python, GNU tools etc. running on your OS). Linux targets the single UNIX specification and POSIX-Compliance. Writing a POSIX-Compatible system is feasible though. MS-DOS is an easy target but remember that DOSes are not going to last long since UEFI is in the party, MSDOS and it's puke programs relied on BIOS Interrupts which are outdated, buggy and crap.
My suggestion? You're too young to develop an operating system, come back after you've got some idea of what you're doing.
Sorry if this post seems harsh, but what I'm trying to tell you is that developing an OS does require some knowledge, your posts have shown a large amount of ignorance (can't build a compiler, request for creating an OS, can't handle the toolchain), which shows that you aren't ready for such task, I wouldn't say stop, because I don't hold any rights to stop anyone from doing what they want, but I feel you should first gain some knowledge about how x86 works, how to handle the toolchain, different notations (hex/bin/dec),
some basic assembler knowledge, crucial concepts like pointers in C/C++ and then comeback.

I say go for it. Nothing teaches so well as experience. If you always wait until you are "ready" then you will never achieve anything. So do it now and forget about the naysayers.

What do you mean by style?

I'm sure there's a reason why there are different operating systems instead of just one . What you are trying to do is find your preference by asking different people which won't work because as you can see by the poll, not everyone picked the same.
