OpenStep, GNUstep

After almost 8 years (we talked about it, of course), a new version of the GNUSTEP live CD has been released - version 2.5, for amd64. The live CD is based on Debian 9, has low hardware requirements, and uses Linux 4.9 with compressed RAM and no systemd. The live CD is a very easy and non-destructive way of testing out and playing with GNUSTEP, a free software implementation of OPENSTEP.

It's been a long, long time since I got to use our glorious *STEP database category. Isn't that one beautiful icon?

Anybody else notice that the favicon for the GNUSTEP site is the Amiga logo?

Yes it is the Amiga Boing Ball

But its not the GNUSTEP site but the site were the live CD image is hosted - by a Mr. Alex Myczko. Maybe he is a Amiga fan as well?

Obviously I am. And, try ctrl-alt-f1, root, mcedit /usr/bin/amigashelld (edit the shebang line to be /bin/bash instead of /usr/bin/bash) then run amigashell start

I should do the ca: (in /etc/telinit) to catch ctrl-alt-del and cat /usr/share/
