Right on. I think I’ll bring this in to my assembly class. 2003-11-13 7:35 pm I can’t access the site, is it /.’ed? 2003-11-13 7:37 pm It WAS up a few minutes ago, but then it stopped responding, I’m guessing it’s being OSNews’ed. 2003-11-13 7:52 pm I found that it does all it says and is dead easy to use. Accepts all the stuff on my computer as well. Pity it is just a hobby OS. 2003-11-13 8:14 pm I have the greatest respect for people who manage projects like this , SkyOS, TriangleOS, etc. Great work. 2003-11-13 9:51 pm I like this OS, and like the first poster, it amazes me every time there’s an update. I am more the systems engineering guy, hardware oriented, so I’m big on assembler. 2003-11-13 10:18 pm It is really nice… I have tried it before… taking their advice to disconnect the Hardisk and I was impress with it. I just wish I knew a bit more on how to use it properlly and manage to get it online… I wonder how more usefull they will get when they reach v1.0… only 25 more to go… I find it really interesting… So am interested in its progress… 2003-11-14 1:03 am Talk about extreme programing. Projects like this are inspiring. I’m always impressed by designs for efficiency, speed, compactness and portability. This OS easily surpases them all. After I finish installing Gentoo, I’ll be playing with this OS for a while. And following it’s progress too. Oh, yeah, I stand vehemently against the new bloated languages. In my mind, Assembly and C are the purest programing languages. You are not a programer if you don’t know them like the back of your palm. 😉 2003-11-14 2:19 am Portability? This thing is written in x86 assemby 2003-11-14 4:28 am I just played around with it for about 15min. It is absolutly amazing that a OS that beautiful can fit on a floppy. Truly amazing programmers at the helm of this project. I wish I knew assembly now, I would help them add some more functionality. It seems like this would be a great OS to put on a usb keychain to diagnose hardware problems. 2003-11-14 8:56 am It’s beautiful! I am an executive editor at “My Computer” magazine in Romania and I think I have just found my next review idea. I love this OS. I’d just wish it would recognize my mouse all the time not just once in a while [COM 2] 2003-11-14 10:08 pm What does extreme programming has to do with it?
