I have almost finished the emulator but it wasn't working well enough to be included.
So you're making 'Terminal' nice :D

Write an installer on Pastebin. It's a hassle to download a zip.

I would say this is the best OS i've seen here so far, it have a lot xD

I would suggest that you save everything into one folder, right now there's two, system and home - just clatters the users' pc folder.
And don't make the file startup because that's annoying xD

And make an installer!

Have you seen the Mac OS X file system?

It looks great and functions well, but I agree with Lyqyd, this basically is a prettified version of LyqydOS (I am aware this is your own code. However, it functions quite a bit like LyqydOS, but with custom programs.). I do like this, and I would make some programs for it if I had time. Anyway, good luck.

Very nice! It is rare that we see a good OS on the forums.

Files and folders, it's random somtimes.
Once I tried to open the Applications folder, it would give me that error, and after restarting, going to Applications would work but if I try to open TextEdit.app, I would get that error again.

Looks fantastic! But a few bugs:

- Clicking "About Finder", and then trying to resize the window gives Finder:203: index expected, got nil
- Clicking on a menu item, then clicking on an app in the doc leaves the drop down menu still open, but the rest of the screen has moved on.
- The whole screen doesn't need to be redrawn when updating the clock. It would stop the OS flashing in CCEmu
- Arrow keys don't work in TextEdit.
- TextEdit doesn't function properly (deleting doesn't always delete, typing won't show when you've clicked on another spot)
- Resizing the TextEdit window after clicking the green plus button doesn't resize the text location
- Changing the desktop background doesn't do anything
- Yeah you really need to do some more testing on TextEdit... :P

Maybe not. I've had cc-emu flicker for no reason what so ever once.

It would probably fix a lot of it. I'll look in to it. I didn't make it update the entire screen because of the clock. But yes I'll look in to it.

And yea, TextEdit needs lots of work. It was more of a proof of concept for opening files from Finder.

You can open files from Finder? Any files I selected wouldn't stay selected for long enough to open them, and double clicking did nothing.

Well, first open TextEdit, quit it then open 'Test.txt' in Documents

You may not have to open TextEdit first but it's less likely to screw up.

Here you go, just 4 screenshots of the file system with all the hidden files shown... Obviously there is way more than this.

Home Folder
System Folder
More System Stuff
The Folder Applications Temp Files Go

The icon for TextEdit is actually the Notes icon unless you can't make it because of its size then i understand.

I tried making it as the TextEdit icon. If you can make an icon that wil fit I'd love to use it, I just found the notes fit better.
Bear in mind that the icons are 3 x 2.

Down side to the size limit :( should make it touch screen on the largest monitor! :P If your argument against is 'no right-click' then look at my misc scripts section of my programs thread, i have a monitor right-click script.

Also check out my programs post for some terminal command programs you can use in this (in the General Programs that replicate Mac OS X) ;)
