Hey Man, I used Microsoft Power Point/Google Slides to make this dashboard, just if your wondering, why? your thinking of making your own OS? I can tell you how if you want? using linux of course.

In general with all software programing issues unless the question is something very specific the fact you asking a general question would suggest your lacking a skill set.

You need to build skills with small tasks until you can tackle larger issues.

As I say Many Many times. For anything programming that is above trivial you need to analyse what your doing, draw out a flow chart Coding from a good flow chart is a relatively simple process That's why the system analyst get paid more than the code monkey!

maybe I can use this, I been looking into this, but still, how to implement it into linux, well, it did say you can make a program cross platform, but, still, don't want to make a program, I want to make a video game system OS

The OS IS a a bunch of programs that co-operate !

There are various detailed books on OS design you can buy. One, about a system called MINIX was the inspiration behind Torvald's Linux

BACK to my original answer your asking very basic question that, despite you claim to have written various programs, suggests your lacking a deep enough knowledge base to undertake this task.

As Steve says get a reliable book and start researching. I have written programs of all sizes on many platforms, managed the development of man years of programming effort and I know that the starting point is on paper. Sort out exactly what you need the software to do, be it an application or a OS.

Write it in some kind of operating form, a flow chart is easiest for most people. The start to worry about how to translate that into code.

Unless you know what the program is supposed to do and when your not going to get something that works reliably. What you want to do can be done on any platform but you need to know more about what your trying to do to get a clear idea.

I have planned it out, on paper, on computer, I even made a video of how I want it to work, but I just want to incorporate this dashboard and login(and more) to my OS, and people said linux is the best one to get started with making your own OS, I just want help to implement these graphics into linux as the GUI/UI, I have been researching for a week, with nothing about this

I know how to make a DE with combine programs, but I want a program that I can design my very, VERY own DE, not some program that does a preset, I made many programs before, using C#,C++ and VB, maybe a little bit of F# too, very little, but I want to create my own DE, not use programs to make a preset type of DE, Thanks!(I kinda want to use the images I made for the dashboard)
