I don't want to spoil your dream, but in large cooperatively developed 
projects it's tough to achieve each and every goal you've set out for your 
MyBSD. There'll always be people opposed to your ideas, just as in 'the real 
world'. But to give you a helping hand, I'd suggest waiting a few years with 
this dream, until you've dug deep enough in the material (BSD internals, C 
programming, user interface development, etc) so that you have a solid base 
to start from. This isn't easy, and is usually university-grade material 
you're talking about.

Furthermore, the most important asset in starting up such a huge project is 
communicative skills. This implies a solid understanding of the English 
language at least, and quite frankly, yours is a tad bit behind that. On 
another note, most of the BSD users, administrators and the like don't seek 
to dethrone Windows as the number one desktop (and, arguably, server) OS, 
but just the solution to their problems.

Just my two cents,
Thomas E. Spanjaard
