Does that mean the programs completely wont resume?
I mean you can resume them but don't give them key events

They resume, but only get key events when selected (like in windows)

Oh yeah I thought you would completely pause the un-focused programs :P

"NOTE: Passwords are hashed but they use a highly insecure hashing method (SHA256)."

Or you could just salt your passwords? Either that or have the users not use shitty passwords because those sites just use rainbow tables to crack passwords.

There will always be a rainbow table entry for the password "ASDF" but not for "x fgjklhjkl jdkx bgvaiuhjszghikouvyhszbhty ijuvszg nybiuvh"

Probably could, I'll have to look into better solutions first though

Maybe make the selective multitasking a toggle feature, as it would be quite useful for things like Rednet/Redstone updates.

EDIT: After trying it now I realise it is just looks. Most of the buttons are just there for show (e.g Drag, Minimise and Close) are mainly for show and SOMETIMES work depending on the box (or just X and Y mouse value bugs).

Very nice looking OS...lots of bugs.

Drag and close should work in the Alpha version (if not try a couple times, it should work). In the upcoming release 1.0 minimize also is functional

The [X] window button in that version should be functional, try to click it a couple times. Next the text error is fixed in the upcoming version (1.0). Please report all bugs on the GitHub (https://github.com/ObloxCC/ObloxOS/)

If you're going to implement a store, but not implement Danny's social net API, you could instead implement STD and use the Discover Store instead.

If you are going to use more Discover-specific things, then carry on.

I am currently planning on using the cloud, email, notification, etc
