I've released new version of my OS, but since it's pre-alpha version I didnt post it to my Derrick thread because very much functions will change in the final version, so mods, please dont move it there.
This time, its got FAT12 programs loading working and a faster FDD driver than 0.0.1 had. 8) Also I experimented with DOS to load my kernel and it works, so don't worry when you'll find io.sys on the floppy.

I'll be happy if you'll give it a shot and post what should be fixed :)
Link is here: http://derrick.xf.cz/derrick002.IMA
(English version)

Thanks in advance.

Regards
inflater

Very nice. I like the command line. But I was unable to test it much, so other people should try it too.

You know what I would have been impressed by? A Rickrolled command otherwise I find this version a piece of trash no one else should ever try this!

There's no need to start foulmouthing like this. Inflater clearly explained it is pre-alpha.

Great security. It ensures your data's safety.

Works perfectly. Server unavailable? Probably your ISP's issue... I've uploaded on another mirror: try http://inflater.ic.cz/derrick002.IMA but it's really SLOW, at least for me... 5 kB/s speed.

If it wont run, verify that it has 1.4MB like a standard floppy would have.

Okay, i had to use my dialup ISP to get it, my high speed isp was blocking it i think.

Anyway, the test went well. I was very impressed by the user interface. If only Linux was that good.

At least I saw the number of people here who actually do OS testing in this section. Revenge for the Segway poll for those who ran it. :P

And for those who didnt, take a look at it's beautiful full-screen user interface,

Gotcha. 8)

Okay, this can be now moved to General Ramblings... :P
