Busy, Busy, Busy

It's been some time since we posted something here, and not without reason. We are simply extremely B-U-S-Y =) That's not a bad thing per definition, but it leaves little time for FreeNOS so far. Nevertheless, we do our best to continue our work on next version of FreeNOS. Most likely, this release will not contain many new features, only improve what is already in FreeNOS. This also means we're gonna try to make the system reliable, like Minix3!

Take care,

Today, I met Luc Nieland of HAR.FM and he invited me for a live interview about FreeNOS! It was my first interview ever, but I really enjoyed it :-) Click here to download the interview.

Happy Summer Holiday!

The sun shines outside: summer is coming! Most of us are packing to leave for a well-deserved holiday somewhere on an unknown island not be mentioned here ;-) Anyway, work has already started on the next release, and maybe we'll have our 0.0.4 ready end of this month. I wish everyone a happy holiday, and meanwhile enjoy our news entry on!
