Oh cool I'll check ASAP :D
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

Lol don't worry it was not gonna last more than the time you see it :P

Except tomorrow's embeeded rickroll.... *runs*

EDIT: Sounds promising ^^

I hope once finished that someone will write a port of Axe and an editor for it since the language is getting quite popular. It should be optionally installable, though, for people who don't use Axe. Mosaic integration will be awesome too for on-calc ASM coders

Speaking of embedded rickrolls, there is already one embedded in the kernel ;) You just have to find it...

Me too!  This sounds really cool!  How much MEM do you think it will take?  :D

Hmm, well, first of all, I want to make clear the difference between memory and storage.  Users have no access to RAM for storage, which is used as memory, meaning memory for running programs.
Storage is the ROM, which is where the filesystem resides.  The kernel will probably stay in one page, and the OS might take up another two.

Oh, okay.  I think that's small enough to not make changing between the TIOS and KnightOS very hard.  Cool! ;D

Also, the App to install it via TIOS should help quite a bit, as well.  It will basically let you send your calculator the app (while still running TIOS), and it will unlock flash, disable interrupts, and install KnightOS on your calculator.
When you do this or send an 8xu file, it will run an installer the first time you boot up.  This installer will get your preferences, settings, and determine if you are upgrading from TIOS.  If you are, then it will offer to convert your existing variables to be backed up into the KFS.  That way, it will save .8xps and .8xks and whatever other data you may have on your calculator into /TIOS/ in the KFS.

Um, I will not release a date at this time.  It is nowhere near completion.

As long as you did not embeed a video :P (I don't want the OS to take 300 ish KB just because of a rickroll XD)

As for release date I think it's a bit too early to set one, plus deadlines tend to be hard to meet and put pressure on developpers. I personally just go with "It will be released once it's done", providing progress on every project by the author won't completly stop then I might start poking him for progress :P

The rickroll is actually a textroll, so it's all good.

Ah ok good to hear :P

I mean, let's not go overboard like the defunct DESUDESU.8xk file ;D (RealSound rickroll that was on my old UTI webspace)
