This is a great OS, I just have a couple questions, are there any plans to have a program which has support for printing? And is there anyway to still be able to type like "edit test", so far I see support for printing in that but it would be awesome if it could be added to the text editor.

This has many great features but there are some improvments that it could have. id love to be able to print from the text editor and i would like a easy way to add my own programs to the os! in fact how would i add a program to the os! im trying to add my email program to the drop down list of internet and im getting errors because of adding it! There needs to be some tutorial on how to add a program or a easy way to add one via the os!

EDIT: I see you have Github and a wiki! PLEASE ADD A LINK TO THE WIKI and add some info so people new to the OS can learn how to use it!!!

EDIT 2: I found out how to add a icon and had the path go to my program i added but when i click the icon nothing happens

Hello!

I've got a problem and maybe someone can help me.

I think it is not possible to create multitasking because with coroutines etc. the system (by the way it is completely rewritten) starts to flicker.
Maybe someone got an idea.

RaSOS (see signature) does multitasking with coroutines. It only occasionally flickers. Of course, the programs are designed specifically to run on RaSOS and don't really do much processing, but it's implement-able.

depends on how you implement it. if you have a frame buffer table that all term calls are redirected to then any program that is term call heavy will flicker as the computer can't react fast enough to both draw on screen and update the buffer. on the other hand if you enforced that all programs must react to a "redraw" event then you don't have to hold a buffer of every program. it is definitely possible to make programs run in a multi task environment making it run smooth and fast is all about optimization. also every call to term.clear() normally causes a black frame to pop up just overwriting the last frame means there is less obvious shudder.

Thank you for your tipps but if I have seen it right it is not possible to do multitasking with programs that aren't special written for that.

But...

There is maybe a way but I am sorry but I don't know how to do this... :(

No, it's definitely possible. The only reason RaSOS can't use normal programs is because it uses a fancy rendering system. If you're just using a normal system, multitasking is very possible. Look up "Taskforce" or "LyqydOS". I'm not they multitask, but I'm fairly sure they do.

Hello!

I have tryed it with using Taskforce but there is unfortunately the same problem: it begins to flicker.
But Maybe you can help me :D?

I almost flipped when I saw "Korn". I thought you stole my username, lol!

Anyways, pretty cool OS! Different color scheme would be nice though :D

Overall, 9.5/10!

Have you checked out LyqydOS? You should see very little if any flickering, and it most certainly multitasks.

1) easy manipulation of files and folder with color and mouse orientated.
2) running multiple programs in parallel.
3) easily expandable network.
4) useful applications like npaintpro.

So mainly ease of use and tasking.
