I'm amazed you could get file system and a window system in less than 510 bytes of code! This is cute and cool! :D I know the file system is very simple, (I had fun figuring it out from hex dumps,) but if I'd been writing it I would have had trouble simplifying it so much, if that makes sense.

Edit: Now I see a part of the window system is present in the applications, :roll: :P but it's still a really small window system so it's still pretty cool. :)
