Here is my review for the current version.
I'm sorry if I'm being harsh, but an OS, even in an alpha state, should have some functionality.

Pros:
- Good installer
- Good interface
- Cool file viewer concept (like Total Commander)
- No errors
- Options (but only change background color)

Cons:
- 1/5 of it is implemented, these things aren't implemented at all:
First icon on the desktop
First, third and fourth icon in the settings menu
Add application in the application settings menu (shows a non-functional interface)
Delete and list application in the application settings menu
All actions in the file viewer except exit
- No multitasking at all (even multishell would be better)
- No functionality at all
- Can't add applications
- Shell doesn't clear the screen
- Cursor keeps blinking after closing shell or file viewer
- Time doesn't update (add a timer?)
- File viewer doesn't show difference between files and folders
- Can't run scripts from the file viewer
- NDF-OS clone with multiple screens (I'm getting so tired of these NDF-OS clones)

Why did you choose to release this OS in such an unfinished state?
Anyways, I hope it gets better with updates.

Thank you for your feedback. Let me answer to every contra point. I numbered your points for better overview.
  • Add application should normally work. Could you please explain what's not working? Notice that added applications will be shown after the next reboot.
  • Coming in today's update.
  • The file viewer is just temporary. It is my unfinished CCC. Later this week there will be an own file manager for the operating system.
  • Coming in a later update.
  • What would be functionality for you? The sense of a ComputerCraft OS is basically to launch applications and that's what KreOS 3.0 can do.
  • Fixed in today's update.
  • Fixed in today's update.
  • Fixed in today's update.
  • I actually don't think so because it is quite different.
Thank you again for your feedback. Today's update is coming at 6:00 PM CET (UTC+002).

Please check if http is enabled in the ComputerCraft config file on the server.
Make it check if http is working like this:
while loop==true do
http.request("http://example.com")
local event=os.pullEvent()
if event=="http_success" then
print("Successfully connected to the internet")
loop=false
elseif event=="http_failure" then
print("There was a problem connecting to the internet")
loop=false
end
end
Also,your OS has improved alot over the past 3 years,nice job ;) !

You could but the source code is terrible and would it then really be your "own" OS?
