I can test early versions of KOS on an emulator and later versions on real hardware.

I agree with Sir. BrandonW once told me that the reason why calc OSes never got completed was usually due to disputes on which features will be included or not. This hindered the development.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I would help test, but I don't think my sis would like me screwing up her calc, and the nspire can't, right?

I would love to test, and even more so to program for this.  I'll just need to get the tools nessicary.  I do realize the point about too many on the kernal, therefore I will just write apps for it.  I'm probably not the best candidate to work for the kernel >.<

Note that this thread is not about the 83+ KnightOS, though. It's about the possible OTz80 version. You would need a copy of the calc prototype and somebody would have to write an emulator.

Well, you have a lot of beta testers already, but if you need me...  I'm available.
btw, I can test on real hardware, but only on my TI-84+ BE, it doesn't have any projects on it.  ;)

but how would we test the OT version?  Do we have to build a calc?  I'm no great shakes at hardware.  :P

Yeah, I would probably write an emulator first.

It would need to be really accurate, though, although if we keep the same hardware in long terms, it may be easier, especially that we would know what hardware is used. I think now we really need to worry about what will be the final hardware, though.

I consider myself an intermediate asm programmer, so after the base of the OS is laid, i can help with the busy-work of writing routines and such

I know I'm kind of late in saying this, but I'd be willing to do beta testing as well :P.
