I realise the software described below does not fall under the catagory of creating software for a Macintosh. But I am interested in writing the software under UNIX or a similar and/or supported system. These are the (very poorly designed) but working OS attempts I have designed on my PC. If you have a PC and want to try out Neo OS, message me, I will be more than happy for feedback. Let me know what build you want. Thanks.

Neo OS 5 probably would, but iTunes only works on XP and 2000, and my system runs on Windows 98. Therefore...it would not run.

If you are writing an OS, then why is a previous OS a requirement? I can install Linux, Windows, Mac all without having a previous OS installed on the machine. Also, by the way you acted in the other thread, I am not quite sure you have the mental capacity to design a functioning OS.

yeah you can't seriously call it an operating system if you have to run it inside windows98. Is this a joke?

actually this has been compiled in c+ and runs as a program. (exe)...still, i can say I am rather proud of my achievments. it still required a lot of work(to develope the look and feel and interface). Again, if anyone has a pc, or Virtual Pc they would like to try it on, feel free to ask. I will be posting pictures up soon. If anyone is interested. Thanks

I think he meant C++, and why shouldn't he do this if he so feels? But this belongs in the lounge I think.

But it isn't an OS.. it's just an operating environment.. or a desktop interface :shrug: it's like a layer that runs on top of windows :shrug again:

It seems that a lot of folks forget... there was a "lite" (free) version of BeOS that could be started as an .exe in windows. As far as I can tell, it was a full fledged operating system.

More like an emulator, is what it is, since the Win98 OS still handles hardware etc directly as far as I can see, and this application plugs into that. Nonetheless it isn't easy to write something like this, even if there is no real use for it. Even people like Linus Torvalds started off small.


That said, if this billy/bettafish clown ever gets this thing into the mainstream, it would be really weird.

Any exe file could be or contain a potential virus, its just common sense.

Does it run full screen and do i have to change any system files to get it to work?

Are there any applications yet?
- audio player
- text editor
- web browser

Is this alpha or beta software and how good does it run with the minimum system requirements?

One last question, what makes your operating system stand out among the rest, as in, why should users download and use Neo OS?

Oops, sorry. Didn't read all your build number features. Good luck on your projects, it isn't easy to make an operating system that appeals to people.

i can't see the pics, data transfer is maxed out on yahoo.

but hey, don't let these naysayers get you down. Congrats on writing it all yourself - I doubt most people here even have the know-how to do something like that.

Did you implement your own VM/cache system? I'd be pretty impressed if you did.

But think of it this way - linux started out as a branch off of minix. All it was was some console drivers.

Look where it is now.

There's no indication that he did any of that yet. I would be impressed if he wrote his own scheduler, driver architecture, graphics primitives, API, etc, but I doubt that he did.

BTW, if you are the least bit serious you need to support Win2K at least.

Right after being in the scene for things like this back in my windows days heres what i think:
A)Quite clearly its a shell not an OS seen as it runs on top of another OS
B)ITS MADE IN FLASH HAHAHA
C)Horrible design, REALLY horrible, worst design since BABYA SYSTEM
http://teknidermy.com/issue/11/babyafied/bdesktopsm.gif
ahh i talk to that guy who made that, its hilarious
http://teknidermy.com/issue/11/babyafied/
theres some article about the guy cos he spammed every board/site in the shell / customisation scene to buggery, just search google for babya system.
ahh seems hes playing a song a friend of mine made in his crappy mp3 player haha that amuses me no end

I don't think the actual shell is written in Flash, but just the feature overview that they designed.

Made in Flash? HAHA yeah right, try Paint.

After this guy's posts in the other thread, it's pretty hard to take this seriously.

the development of Neo is not based on Flash. The website is made in Flash. Neo is constructed on the Red Globe architecture. Again, if anyone is interested in trying it out, ask. But do not attempt to imply false implications of the OS without working with it first hand. This is not a virus, scan it yourself.
Thank you,

Red Globe FS yields nothing in Google, and yet you state you use it. This either means a) you made it or b) you made it up.

I go with b) because if you could write a full fledged file system, an OS might be easier to believe you making. But, seeing as we have terrible hackjob screen shots and a flash animation only a simpleton could admire, I vote you as being someone with too much goddamn time on their hands.

Yeah... isn't it a requirement that to be considered an OS the code does not need someone else's underlying structure (running on top of Win98).

Interesting that you could build a emulator, but I see no purpose for this on a mac forum.

One question: why?

Why you one scold another?

The Windows UI is horrible, it's good that someone is working on a replacement.

One suggestion - is there any possibility of you writing your own window server so you could launch the environment from DOS, or a DOS clone so users could avoid Windows all-together.

It isn't that simple; Windows isn't just a GUI, as you imply; it ties into the hardware (drivers), handles memory, and so forth...

Actually, I think some of this realised this a while ago, Flash scrollbars or not. The little f**ker is just a kid with some serious problems having the ability to wank around here for a bit BECAUSE THE FU'CKING MODERATORS ARE TOO LAZY TO CLOSE THESE ASSININE THREADS.

How do I save this thread for posterity ? HAhaha !. Classic.

billy_2004 - you have far too much time on your hands. Why not put your energies into something more productive, like finding a cure for AIDS or cancer, or the solution to world peace ? Just a suggestion....

As far as I remember, Windows 95 was basically just a program running on top of DOS, with DOS doing all the deep down stuff...

From AI:

"Okay, I will be honest. The reason I am building this Operating System is because I cannot stand OS X. OS X needs to be whiped from the face of the earth(and all your hard disks). What we are creating at Bettafish Inc is a revolutionary new File System called Red Globe. RG is the way to the future of computing, simply because it supports multiplatform operation. Do not judge me from the other posts at MacNN, they dont appreciate me and my work, and I know you fine people will. I can tell by your attitudes that your way better people. And I trust you all to support me in my cause to bring down OS X, and globalize Neo OS.
-Liz Phillips"

That's not true of any of the WinNT line (Windows NT/2K/XP/2003), and not entirely true of Windows 95/98/ME. There was a lot of stuff in Windows 95 (like Direct X) which were not provided by DOS but were fundamental.

Besides, since DOS was part of the Windows name then, calling the whole thing an OS was appropriate.

This just screams paranoia, not to mention ignorance. Does she really think Mac forii members are the best audience for an OS X takedown? Like we really need ANOTHER OS. Why doesn't she/he/it just write a window manager for Linux?
