OSNews, Generic OSes Version 0.57 of Visopsys is now available for download. This is a bugfix and maintenance release. There are various GUI touch-ups, the Disk Manager (a.k.a. Partition Logic) now updates disk geometry information in FAT partitions after disk copy operations, the window 'list' component has been reimplemented, and a number of kernel improvements have been back-ported from the 0.6 development branch. As always, the ISO image is an installable live demo. Downloads here, changelog here, and Freshmeat announcement here.

I've been following Viopsys for awhile, and while it's a nifty idea it looks pretty useful--is there even any ports to it?

What, exactly, are they trying to accomplish with this OS? It doesn't look like very much; hell, windows 95 looked better, 10 years ago.

Thats the problem with your statement there isn't a "they" its a "him" one person cranking out an OS. In my opinion a monstrous task and i am surprised it looks as good as it does. He clearly states on his website that its not that useful for individuals yet and he is waiting for it to mature more before he includes others in the developement process.

To feed the trolls...

Your question was highly disrespectful to the topic. Anyone that has gotten this far in OS development deserves some measure of respect - even from detractors.

This is a great project. There are too many people who comment on OS development from the backseat, rather than give it a shot and try to build something themselves. The author has accomplished a lot in this project and it is looking great.

in a few years we can have heated flame wars between this and skyOS ;)

... all joking aside though, it is very nice looking for being a one man show.
