And then work on a language! Either interpreter or complier. Both teach a lot of software practices that are very useful.

In this case, it's only a kernel & bootloader, but there were intentions to go wider - I have enormous respect for people who get to a shippable, useful system (such as Beos, Plan9, Oberon).
