I implemented support for VirtualBox's "Seamless" mode. It doesn't work perfectly with my default decoration theme, since the shadows are a baked-in part of the borders.

I wrote a quick blurb on it in the wiki. It's a pretty simple interface.

Hi nakst, your UI is really impressive! Do you have any pre-built release images I can try? I had trouble with your build tools the last time I tried to use them.

Also, I noticed you moved to bitbucket but left your github repository with a notice as its HEAD - why not just push to both? I moved to Gitlab myself a few months ago but I still push to github as a mirror - the great thing about git is you can push to multiple remotes and keep them all in sync.

Also-also, I see you describe your OS as "completely from scratch" but your userspace seems to be based on Musl, freetype, and a number of stb libraries - that seems misleading to me (especially as someone who has made an effort to turn a "mostly-from-scratch" OS with similar third-party elements in its userspace into a completely-from-scratch OS with no third-party code).

Sorry, there are no releases yet. The project is still too early in development. However, much of the build tools have been improved recently, so perhaps you could try again?

Two reasons: I don't know how git works, and I don't want my OS hosted on a service owned by Microsoft.

For me, "from scratch" is more about design. The OS is not a Unix clone - unlike many others. I'm also trying to replace many outdated OS concepts and replace them with new ones, although few of these have been implemented yet.
But I'll be happy to admit the word "completely" is possibly exaggeration. :P

Are we reenacting Windows 2.x/3.x? :​P

No dice, and your build system is not very friendly to trying to rebuild - your manual patching is particularly scary. I was hoping you could just upload an ISO somewhere to try out...

Very interesting OS, reminds me of an XP.
Man, keep going with your coding style, it is really nice when you can look at someone's code and not get a seizure. Nicely written, easily understandable, no weirdly named variables.
I wanted to test it out, so I tried to compile it, but:
Code:
checking for shl_load... configure: error: Link tests are not allowed after GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES.
Makefile:10800: recipe for target 'configure-target-libstdc++-v3' failed
make: *** [configure-target-libstdc++-v3] Error 1

Don't know if this is the problem Kevin's been having.

I spent of bunch of time cleaning up my text editor and adding features, including syntax highlighting. Now it's actually pretty usable!

I did get this error myself, but it seems the rest of the build continued anyway and I did manage to get it running. I suspect nakst's build system is building some unnecessary components...

@nakst: Some of this is quite impressive! Your UI elements themselves are very cool, especially with the transition animations on your buttons. The icon list widget is also impressively complete. However, it seems like system performance is highly dependent on whether the mouse is moving... and not in the usual way where things slow down when the mouse moves but rather it seems you have timers that are somehow bound to mouse movement - the faster I move the mouse the faster the text cursor blinks.
