*dramatic claim alert #2* I'm currently planning to release version 1.0 before 2020. It would at least have some useful built-in applications and the ability to launch user applications.

You've got 4 days, UTC time. Hurry up! :twisted:

I like the style; it's about time it came back.

I like your goals too. I briefly set the same for myself, but backed down to the things I know, BIOS & 16/32 bits, because I've been dithering for about a year and really need to just get on with it.

The boot screen font is a bit small for my eyes though.

Thanks! I like that style too, I think I've got inspired by NeXTSTEP

The system uses the same font everywhere, but yes, I can change that
