1. Looks... interesting. Is it touch controlled?

2. Please... Please add a pastebin link. Almost nobody will download from dropbox.

3. colors.black/colours.black is not a command, it's just a simple variable :D

Ah, it's touch controlled, you can use it on a screen ingame.
And I'll add the pastebin link once I get my PC up and running, my 1TB HD literally just failed.
And thanks for making me aware, and sorry for the misunderstanding about command and variable, lol.

Unfortunately it doesn't, but it's in an alpha stage so that is subject to change.

Multitasking should be implemented on the earliest stage possible, so that you don't have to re-write hundreds of lines of core in the future. It is not that hard either, read about coroutine api in LUA.

I'm attempting to implement it and research as much as I can about it, to see if I can put it in the huge patch.

If you still want to know something about multitasking, here is some code I wrote a while ago. It was meant to be a shell, but I stopped working on it (mostly because I screwed up filesystem.lua/I can't get it to work). But it's multitasking works (but I kinda overdid it. There is a main coroutine manager, managing 2 sub coroutine managers.). You can look at the code, copy it, do what ever you want (I think the license says everything).

It's early in development, I'm still working on it.

I'll be sure to add it in when I have the time, I'm re-making the whole thing.

You can't as of right now, but it's coming in the future.

The OS has finally been updated. Sorry for the huge delay, School kind of got in the way.

Again, I'm sorry. I will make sure to be more consistent with the updates.

The custom background idea was disbanded before the OS even being released, as it was simply too complex to add in at the current stage of the OS, the emptiness of the OS is being worked on, as there will be icons and stuff in the home screen soon, I just need to finish up all the menus and fix some rendering bugs.

Those screenshots look nice. Loading up my ComputerCraft emulator, I've gotta try this out. BirchOS was pretty good, so this should be really good!

Though... birch is a wood... amethyst is a crystal... gg naming scheme

EDIT: Your pastebin installer is messed up. Attempt to index nil on line 8. Works now.

Will do. And the OS is live updated, which means that the installer will always get the latest version, so if there's something that just randomly breaks, blame dropbox.

This was completely unnecessary, but I've split up the Announcement system, to cover both Unreleased versions and Released versions, this is coming soon.
Also, the Terminal has a way to force update the OS.
Simply write "sudo update -exp" to update to an experimental version.
