I am happy to announce today the first release of PonyOS!

PonyOS is an exciting new hobby operating system for pony lovers everywhere. It comes with great features like a drawing tool and full-featured Xterm-compatible terminal.

Is he? This is an international forum, thus UTC is perhaps the best time to judge by. And by that, he's spot-on.

Anyway, being based on とあるOS (which we've seen some amazing screen shots from) it works, thus I wouldn't even consider it a joke.

Well, now it's my turn to judge, I guess. とあるOS is really impressive, considering the GUI and that you've managed to port vim. The lack of network support is a pity, but I think, simple TCP support is way easier than what you've accomplished so far.
And I like ponies.

Sooooooo… My conclusion will be: “What's not to like?” :wink:

I love it. :3

I was judging it based on his location -- if he prefers UTC, then no argument from me...and it was pretty good. :)

Just one downside: the screenshots don't fit in this board's pony theme... :cry:

Is PonyOS a Linux distribution?

No! PonyOS uses its own kernel, built from scratch.


Much more wonderful. =D>
