I Want A Program Thats Free That Lets Me Write An Operating System?

That's going to be very difficult if you are planning on building an OS from scratch.
First you need to choose a programming language and build a kernel, then you have to build the drivers and software and couple it with a kernel.

Drivers are built directly into Linux, BTW.

You may want to try LFS (Linux From Scratch) which will teach you the ins and outs of building an OS with the Linux Kernel.
From there, you may try to build one from scratch.

You may also want to look into ReactOS, Haiku, KolibriOS, or even BareMetal http://www.returninfinity.com/baremetal....

Unless you are a C or C++ programming master don't bother starting from scratch. Just get a mac and be done with it.

Any text editor and a free compiler.
An OS is usually written in languages like C#.
