well i know you have tons of requests so lets rather make this a suggestion. customizable GUI! maybe that is not even possible but personally I don't like having a  castle at the bottom left corner. Not trying to offend in any way but it is just a personal preference, abstract and slick are more my ways of a GUI.

Second suggestion would be to NOT make it a mouse interface. I really hated DoorCS because of that, it's completely inpractical, just stick with the Ti-os way of doing it, it makes going from Ti-os to k-os easier.

third: Command line interface? (I seem to recall that is already planned so my apologies if I bumped it)

It is a really really cool project and quite a challenge! I never installed OS 2 from BrandonW because it did not work for me...I don't think compatability is a issue really but just make sure it easily installs.

hang on to this! as well as tiDE! and your Axe guide :P

You have, just like me, lots of projects in parallel only that your projects are thrice as complicated. Just keep going at your own pace and keep us posted about (significant) progress!

Good luck!

Thanks for the requests and the support, matthias.
As for the castle in the bottom corner, when I get home from Hawaii I can post some stuff. Sir Cmpwn is a modern Knight, and is into abstract interfaces, too ;)

Mouse interface is not happening, I describe a mouseless GUI in some of my posts and docs, here on Omnimaga and on Cemetech.  I haven't posted a ton about this, because I have not really coded any of it yet.  My current progress has been soely on the kernel.

Command line interface with modern linux syntax is planned.

I will do my best to keep other projects working, although the Axe guide has fallen far to the side.  It has not been forgotten, though, so don't worry.

Maybe a TI-OS imitation (definitely not an emulator; just a flashing 5x7 cursor on a blank screen would work) for the people using the gaming interface as a sort of "teacher-proofing" trick? More students would try KnightOS that way ;)

And to add to the "abstract interfaces" discussion, how about a custom startup splash screen?

By the way, how's the kernel coming along? And good luck (on this and all the other projects, too)!

I wish you good luck for this project and I hope nothing bad happens to it :)
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

Trading ASCII texts between computer<->calculator.
That would be a easy and nice feature.

And font compatible with ASCII. ;)

I second the font compatible with ASCII ^^

How about batch files and personalizable commands? The second one isn't that important, though.

Also, not having a limit on ASM programs and not having a such thing as an application (what's the difference, anyway?).

An application uses PAGES of archive space and runs from ROM.  This allows them to be big, whereas ASM programs run entirely from RAM.  The Ti-83+ processor can handle at most 64 KB of RAM, so I doubt that "applications" could be ignored entirely

There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

Not sure about applications, but I believe you will like programming under KOS.
ASCII is already supported.  :P
Also, the filesystem will not have restrictions, you can put any file you like on your calc, including text files from your computer, even Word files.

This is going to be epic :P
I was wondering, is there any way that we can customize our interface? like adding our own mouse routine if we want it or something?

Probably.  I haven't worked on the interface yet in code, so it is still flexible.  I was thinking that users could change their entire interfaces, sort of like KDE vs Gnome, and a particular interface could certainly support a mouse.

Thanks for the support.  I will be working on it a bit more in the next few minutes.
