The latest version of Whitix
, V0.1, has been released for download
. "Whitix is a simple open-source operating system for your PC. It offers a range of applications, so you can do what you want without worrying about instability or poor performance. How often have you wondered why modern software is too complicated, too buggy or just too unclear? Whitix is a return to the ideal of simple software that works the way you want it to. Although the software itself is still in its early days, our vision is well established."
In just under a month, a complete desktop and graphical user interface (Xynth) has been ported to the platform, along with the scripting language Lua. See the changelog or visit the Freshmeat page for more information.
I especially love the system requirements page. "486+ x86 CPU. Above 2Mhz. ATA hard disk, CD drive or floppy drive. PS/2 keyboard."
