OSNews, Generic OSes Visopsys version 0.69 was released today. Four months in the making, this is a maintenance release comprising the final round of tweaks and bug fixes to the 0.6x series of Visopsys, featuring lots of work on the USB subsystem including support for USB mice/keyboards and hubs, tuning of the FAT filesystem driver, usability fixes for various user programs, and loads of OS kernel and C library improvements and bug fixes. As always you can demo Visopsys as a live CD or run a scaled-down version from a floppy disk. Change log is here, and downloads are here.

Visopsys is awesome. It is simply amazing that this is all being done by just one man. It also runs great on old pc's. Im looking forward to the day it gets a port of a khtml browser, a music player and of course the drivers/stacks to support these, that would make it a perfect os to run on old Pentium IIs.

I'm not sure I'd agree with the "perfect" sentiment, but it is indeed a promising project
