Operating systems

A list of projects that have been tagged with the words "operating system".

Operating systems (OS for short) are simulation projects that imitate an operating system. Despite the fact that Scratch is not capable of creating an actual operating system, impressive projects have been made.


Scratch has a long history of users attempting to program their own operating systems. Several have been very successful, reaching the Scratch Website's Front Page.

The projects' complexity have grown over time, as new blocks and such were released, along with other features that allowed programmers to perform astonishing feats.

One such feature was the fact that a user could download a project and import it into their downloaded operating system, very much like purchasing software and installing it in reality. Galleries have been provided for users, allowing them to download many projects from one place.
