How is this not useful just because it's not a proper guide? Someone can just fix it.

I think it is useful, it's how to make something, and a lot of Scratchers want to learn. On the other hand, it's not really the sort of thing that would go on the Wiki...

"Advanced OS?"

My question is what is defined as an "advanced OS" since people have different opinions on what an "advanced OS" is...?

Yeah, some people are generally better at coding so have high standards, whereas a beginner's standards are quite low.

This page is completely inaccurate

So many Scratchers make projects that they call "OS's" but are not actually operating systems. This wiki article is blatantly spreading the misinformation. Calling the end result an "advanced" OS is pretentious considering that it technically isn't an OS at all.

I may be a little biased here, considering that I have programmed several of these myself, but OS's are a common type of Scratch project that are a good way to combine a lot of different aspects of Scratch. The whole point of Scratch is to learn programming, and OS projects are a good way to do that. From what I can tell there is a general community consensus calling them that, and I think the Wiki should reflect community consensus. The term "advanced" is used to denote the level of programming involved, as there are varying degrees of complexity in OS projects.

If Scratch is for learning programming, the Scratch Wiki articles should give correct information. This article gives Scratchers the wrong idea of how an OS works and makes them associate operating systems with GUI/windowing, when operating systems may be used with a terminal. Also, I do not consider the programming in this article to be "advanced" at all.

While I do agree that the article should be more clear on what a real OS is versus the Scratch project type, in S:GUIDES it says that we need to "[u]se correct Scratch vocabulary", and in this case the term that is used by Scratchers is OS, correct or not. I also do agree that we should remove the term "advanced" (at least with the current content of the article), but I still do disagree with completely removing the term "OS" on the grounds that it's not a real OS. The Wiki is supposed to document Scratch, and OS projects are a type of project on Scratch and are referred to using that term by Scratchers. The Wiki should therefore reflect that. Instead of removing the term, it would be better just to add a section explaining the difference between a Scratch OS and an actual OS, but using the term "Scratch OS" or similar throughout the article in order to reflect the community usage properly and also explain the "correct" meaning of the term.

Okay, I think that is a great solution.

What should be done to Operating Systems?
Chibi-Matoran (talk | contribs) 02:11, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
I think that page should describe the type of project while this one should describe how to make one.
jvvg (talk | contribs) 02:47, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Personally, I think this should be removed, as this doesn't really give enough information and it is also extremely outdated.

Difficulty of an Article Like This

An operating system can have such a variety of features and be awfully complex. Are we sure this merits an article? The Wiki should have tutorials on making a very specific part of something, but a tutorial on making an entire OS can be taken so many directions and seems too generic and difficult to do.

I see your point. Maybe it could just be kept for some things almost every OS project contains, such as different buttons to press, example programs you might want to make, how to make a start-up, etc.?

I read this over and over but still have no idea what it really, in a nutshell, is telling me. I think its kinda an unnecessary article. There is already an article about OS's and what they are.

Not useful

This article jumps all around the place and doesn't make sence and is not really a guide at all. Personaly I think This article is not needed.

False info

Scratch is capable of creating OS's. That is false information.

(I haven't read the whole article).

You can't actually create an actual one, but you can mimic one.

Not clear

This tutorial can be confusing for new scratchers. This is not needed.
Duckles1224 (talk | contribs) 16:17, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Lots of tutorials, like the cloud tutorials, are confusing or impossible for New Scratchers so should we get rid of them too?

I personally think this page should remain on Scratch Wiki. The only thing we need to do is edit this page so that it fits with the Scratch Wiki editing standards and add more to it.
