hey everyone. sorry about the continued delay with the flash project, but exams, classes, yada yada yada. @Contra: I am well. I'm curious what has led to the surge of new members, and I press everyone to introduce themselves in the introductory topic.
Hey there, Princeton. I'm glad you found this site, its just me and Contra right now. don't be afraid to necropost at the moment while the site is still empty. you can introduce yourself in this topic here: http://waa.ai/4zCb
Now, some around the TI community have seen KnightOS resurfacing from a brief time of silence. KnightOS is a 3rd party Operating System for the TI-83+ and compatible calculators, And for the TI-84+CSE.
Now, before anyone groans about another 3rd party OS, I feel it necessary to point out how powerful KnightOS really is, even at its current 0.2.0 state.
KnightOS supports multitasking - and not like how that wimpy shell, TSE, does it. It really allows programs to work in the background.
KnightOS is Unix-like and sports several features such as a full filesystem. the KFS, the file system for KnightOS, is nearing read and write completion right now.
KnightOS allows the user to use more RAM than the TIOS allows - almost a 7k difference!
KnightOS also stores everything to the flash. this means that relatively little will be lost when you - sorry, if you - ram clear.
finally, KnightOS is open source. no, the source isn't just given out, it is commented to a T and easily readable to many.
while the future of KnightOS looks bright and happy, SirCmpwn and I cannot stress how important it is that we get as many users on this project as possible. it doesn't even matter if you cannot write code; come by KnightOS.org (chat at #KnightOS on freenode) and offer opinions and spread the word of this great operating system!
