Last week I started working on my graduation project. It’s a full-time job and at the moment my top priority. During the weekend I try not to spend too much time using the computer. For example, next weekend I will go to a concert of Sonata Arctica :-). Last weekend I have been keeping up with the emails on grub-devel so GRUB 2 will remain to be maintained.
Besides that, I am reading Operating Systems Design and Implementation by Andrew Tanenbaum. Although I know quite a lot on this subject already, I am reading it to refresh my memory on this subject and to prepare myself to read more papers on microkernel design. I have the silly idea to waste my precious time on writing my own microkernel some day. More importantly, I like reading and I do not want to spent too much time working on the computer. I am considering buying the book Modern Operating Systems, also by Andrew Tanenbaum. Can someone tell me if this is a good book and if it doesn’t have too much overlap with the book I am currently reading?
So I do not have much time at the moment. Still, I intend to finish the ATA driver and networking support for GRUB 2 somewhere in 2007. Also, I want to get the Dirac code for FFmpeg in shape so it can be committed soon. I am not sure if doing all this in 2007 is realistic though…
