This looks very, very impressive. In fact, to me this is the most appealing OS on the forums right now. Well done.

When executing the installer, I get the following error:
installer: 102: attempt index ? (a nil value)
In green right before that red error message, the text
tree.lua
is displayed.

I've got the http API enabled and have downloaded from pastebin many times before.

This is quite strange. Download from pastebin goes fine but downloading from github results with this error. Please check if our github repository is available to you.
On our computers the download process goes fine.
Alternatively you can donwload the release package and install the LongOS manually.

This looks like a certainly highly detailed OS with all the little things and big things a CC OS should have plus more!
I love the interface!
Great Job!

I second that :D

I think I will re-design my GUI for AquaOS soon...It seems to be very old compared to some newer ones.

We decided to turn next pre-release version 1.0.1 into release version 1.1. This was because we implemented a lot of new features in this version so the difference can be seen by anyone.
For now there are several small features and two big are left to do. We are going to finish and release version 1.1 till monday.
Thanks for replies!

There is a typo in the text near the top, second line you have put 'he ' instead of 'The'. But it's look really really good although I think you need to touch up on the art and colours, I feel they colours you use don't belong together.

Thanks for your opinion!
Colors and the desktop wallpaper can be changed inside tho OS (color configuration dialog). You can customize a lot of things in the LongOS! Here is an example screenshot:

Also you can suggest your color combination and we will think about changing our default colors to yours.

Wow, this is impressive!
I like the fact that an actual GUI system is used and that if an application crashes, it will handle the crash.
The level of customization is pretty nice.

LongOS running inside of LongOS, twice!

Very nice work! Not only the best OS1 I've seen on the forums but that developer documentation! +1 to you sir, finally someone who really knows what they're doing.

Oh also, good job managing to fit digital boobs in a bikini on the Computer's small resolution xP

1 I'd go as far to call this an OS, as context I call the others "graphical shells" because they don't deserve the OS title, so hat off to you for getting that!

Looking for translators!
We have implemented multilocalization in LongOS v1.2 so now we are looking for translators!
If you know any common language (except for English) and want to participate please send a PM to me as soon as you can!

Hmm, why not! LongOS can support any localization that are written using standard english letters and symbols. So if you like to create either en_UK or en_AU localization we will be glad to include it!
