If I were Bill Gates this is what I would do.
I would make the Microsoft OS’ code available to the public.
I would make the Aero interface available to the public. What’s the Aero Interface?
Make IE7′ code available to the public.
Team up with Apple and Mozilla.
If I were the guy that owns Apple this is what I would do.
I would make all of Apple’ code for their OS’ available to the public.
Make Safari’ code available to the public.
Team up with Microsoft and Mozilla.
If I were Mike Shaver this is what I would do.
I would make Mozilla Firefox’ code available to the public.
Team up with Apple and Microsoft.
Imagine what would happen if you had almost the whole world building OS’! It would be like having the world as your company. And to have all the OS’ codes at your disposal would be awesome. And for those of us who aren’t so tech savvy there would be a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get see a picture of the the WordPress WYSIWYG editor Here) editor like there is here on WordPress. Everything would be separated into, maybe columns, or maybe sections, or maybe pages. So if you want to change the way you see your icons you would go to the column/section/page and then add or take away something according to the instructions that come with the WYSIWYG editor or the code you downloaded to your desktop. You would be able to combine Leopard, XP, Vista and make a huge great OS. Anyone would be able to build their own OS. And with being able to make your own Laptops (another thing I would change, being able to build your own laptop) You would be able to 1.Build your own Laptop and or Desktop. 2. Then build your own OS to go with your new laptop or desktop (and add the Aero interface if you wanted to). 3. Build your own browser
Sure you can kinda do this with Linux but it’s the fact the you would have the code from XP, Vista, Leopard, Mozilla Firefox and IE7 at your fingertips without having to write any code yet. Yeah you would have to work with the code a little but it would would be nicely separated like I said earlier so it would be as easy as finding the place marked “How your OS’ name here will start up” and the you could ad a picture of your dog so every time you start your computer up you’ll see a picture of your dog. Or you will go to the place saying “Users” and change one of your users to run on basic Leopard, one to run on basic XP etc.
