OSNews, Generic OSes Version 0.65 of the Visopsys operating system was released today. A lot of work has been done on the USB subsystem and underlying UHCI driver - though it's still not 'there' yet it has been re-enabled for the time being. New features were added to the Disk Manager (a.k.a. Partition Logic) including partition copy/paste (same disk or disk-to-disk). And finally, as with the last few releases there's been a focus on improving the GUI code. You can demo Visopsys on a floppy or live CD. Downloads and change log.

Hello, thanks for your comments and for trying Visopsys.

brewmastre: Yeah, I'm no graphic artist, that's for sure. There have been some icons contributed by others that spruce things up a bit (I'm holding off on releasing those for a little while, 'till 0.7). I really like designing icons and such things but it's become apparent to me (from comments) that I'm not terribly good at it. ;-)

Bobthearch: Hooray! Glad it finally worked for you. The bubble people icon is from SuSE Linux. My old one was just too ugly. Hopefully a browser/Gecko port will be done before too long, so people will be able to read HTML from within the OS. You can shut down/reboot from the 'exit' menu at the top of the screen.

Any graphic artists out there want to make any contributions?

Andy
