I have a new entry in the wiki for MajickOS! Now no one can steal my OS's name! http://wiki.osdev.org/Projects#MajickOS
Specs and doc's are available here: http://GitHub.com/MajickTek/MajickOS/wiki
Still WIP, but pictures will be posted here and on both of the screenshot threads.

Screenshots from an OS whose repository consists of 6 commits over the course of a month, involving only a poorly written README and a license agreement? :)

And before the OP says that their super existing code is actually private, I will point out the open source license.

The open source license applies only to the repository (i.e. to that short README.md), and even then it doesn't force the author to publish new versions of the file under the same license, or publicly at all.

No, it does apply to the OS because it says so in the README. And my point wasn't that he was being forced, it was that having a closed open source project is nonsense.

Why are you arguing over something that is not important at all. He has his own will and he can do with his project whatever he wants. Instead of commenting about his project (the purpose of this post), you are commenting about an irrelevant probable mistake. This forum should be renamed to "InternetPoliceDev.org"... :?

I was actually commenting on what I believe to be the entire project and was doing it because there isn't anything more interesting going on. The OP can correct me although I believe he's long gone and the project dead and burried. :)

Project is on hold at the moment, I forgot to post that here. I am working on 3D RAD tools which are being uploaded on MajickTek.itch.io/qrad. And no, this is not fake :roll: and neither is the OS idea. And the GPL license on GitHub is put there automatically. And there is info about the OS at GitHub.com/MajickTek/MajickOS/wiki. There! No confusion! 8)

The README says there is a GPL version but I'm not sure I will bother. I think I'll just put release there.
