That's a nice piece of software!, congratulations.

I felt like I was in an ancient UNIX. :D
I've shocked to see the 'lc' command, it used to be on very old SCO Xenix, SCO UNIX, ...

Did you develop all the user-space commands or do you ported them from somewhere?
Do you plan to open the source code?
It uses its own file system and (a.out) binary?
Did you write your own libc? where is the compiler?

Tell us more how you are developing that system.
Thanks.

Thanks for feedback!

The lc command was inspired by the Xenix counterpart indeed.
The userspace commands and libc were developped by me.
Currently there are no plans to open the source code.
The system uses a custom filesystem and executable binary format.
As for the compiler, you have to purchase the Development System (just kidding, didn't port a compiler, no plans to write one).
