I am very sorry. you completly misunderstood. (seems to be my fortune --
to be misunderstood ;-)

This is the discussion i did not want to start :-(

first, additional to the goals of the RealOS, my personal dreams are
about a "perfect" programming environment. like your dream about a
perfect OS. 
C will always stay the language of choice for low level programming. 
But probably not for app development.

I said this, to make clear I would not be of much help in this area,
despite i do know some theory on OS programming. 

so, i found the second part of my mail to be a project , that could in
not so near future be associated to RealOS...

and  i want to hear your opinion....
