We are happy to announce the first release of PonyDOS!

PonyDOS is an exciting new hobby 512-byte operating system for pony lovers everywhere. It comes with great features like a text-file viewer and wallpaper hot-swapping.

You can find downloads, including a disk image bootable in QEMU, on the release page!

Note: No warranty of stability, usability, or support is provided for PonyDOS.

(n.b. This is parody of this forum's very own klange's wonderful PonyOS. The creators of the project are CrazyEttin, nortti, me, and wolf.)

Our team is hard at work on this. We expect to have a working ponysay in a year or two.

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. :)
