Visopsys (VISual OPerating SYStem) is an alternative operating system for PC-compatible computers which is written "from scratch" and continually in development.
The overall goal of Visopsys is always to cherry-pick the best ideas from other OSes, preferably contribute a few new ideas, and hopefully avoid (re-) introducing some of the more annoying elements.
However many ideas Visopsys borrows from other operating environments, it is not a Windows or UNIX lookalike, nor a clone of any other system.

 FreeSoftwareShop.org forum on Mon 20:44 Jan 8 2007
The design and interface philosophies of Visopsys are driven by the fundamental goal of keeping some of the best features of other successful systems, while discarding many of their notorious weaknesses.
It is not desirable for Visopsys to define new formats (such as a new filesystem type).
Visopsys is developed under Red Hat Linux 9.x, using the latest GNU C compiler and the NASM assembler.

Visopsys is free software and the source code is available under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
The bulk of Visopsys is a fully multitasking, 100% protected mode, virtual-memory, massively-monolithic-style kernel.
Added to this is a bare-bones C library and a minimal suite of applications — together comprising a small but reasonably functional operating system which can operate natively in either graphical or text modes.

 NewsForge | Four alternative operating systems
Visopsys, the Visual Operating System, is an open source OS licensed under the GPL and LGPL that was started in 1997.
However, if you're thinking of running Visopsys as a desktop OS, you might think again, as this is more of a hobby OS developed primarily by Andy McLaughlin.
While Visopsys may not be the best desktop OS, it has one great use.

Actually, the Visopsys CD boots in seven or eight seconds on my machine.
It would benefit from having to load less, and that's one of the reasons why Linux is so slow and Visopsys won't always stay that fast.
The rest of the time is probably simply due to loading more parts than Visopsys has.
