Thanks to everyone for checking out the release.

It seems the standards of some people for hobby OSes have changed -- apparently now they're expected to be better than Windows? Or they're bad (old) if they've been in development for a while?

It also seems like the general comment quality on this site has taken a beating in the last couple of years. Getting closer to the Internet average, it seems. ;)
