yaOSp is a truly stellar example of what a small group of people can achieve with time, dedication and hard work.

Bravo, bravo! Keep up the good work! You continue to impress us with how much further along your OS is than ours, and spur us on to work harder.

The smallest possible type of group too - only 2 people have been hacking on it. :)

Add the -vga std parameter to QEmu and it will work as well.

that is a very bad thing to think...

too many people assume this, but its not true -- the problem is, each and every computer is different, and just because it works on 40million computers doesnt mean it will work on all computers

for the most part, if it doesnt work on an emulator, you can be quite certain that there will be some real machines that it wont work on also (even if it will work on most) -- basically, if it doesnt work on an emulator, then there is either something wrong with your code, or your making assumptions about things, that just happen to be true or irrelevant on the real machines you tested on, but there will be real machines which fail for those same reasons

Looking very nice. The only thing I might add is that you might want to be careful with the "iView" name (if it's built-in or shipped or anything). I read something a while ago about Apple having the rights on the whole name thing with the lowercase "i" in it, but I'm not sure if it's actually true or still valid.

Is it really possible to trademark a single letter? What about Intel's logo, that also begins with a lowercase I, and so does i386, for example.

If we can trademark entire classes of names... I claim all trademarks matching ".+"! Once the government figures out what regular expressions are, it'll be too late. :P

Seriously, I doubt you can trademark anything but a specific logo/name, even if you're Apple. I've seen many things that start with "i", including things that are clearly not licensed by Apple but are also clearly Apple knockoffs.

You both have good points and it does seem ridiculous to trademark a single letter. I can't really remember where I read it either, AFAIK it was something about Apple's request not being accepted in Australia regarding the "i", but that's all I remember.

On-topic: Did you create all the icons and graphics yourself? They look really nice.

one thing about trademarks... it includes anything similar

basically, if you are using a name or symbol which may look familiar to someone acquainted with another company/product in the same market, then it is a violation of trademark

you cant trademark a single letter or a number... but any name or symbol you use, is automatically trademarked, and anything similar to it, is a violation of that trademark -- it doesnt have to be exactly the same, only similar, and used in the same territory, and in the same/similar market
