Although iv seen linux in the stores , it was very low in price . but iv also have seen it for free download through the years of netsurfing. If you could make a good enough op system , that works with everything im sure ppl would buy it just to spite microsoft . Hell if there was a op system compareable to XP or somthing I would give it a try.

you can make an operating system and if it's better than windows, then you will make money. However, I wouldn't trust an operating system from some computer nerd from ??? I wouldn't try to make an O.S. as Microsoft will get very angry with you and try to sue you somehow.
