We have big news for you!

I have quite a few things I want to go over today, so get ready!

To start us off, Brenden is back! The whole deal was a confusing thing and he has returned after confusing the heck out of me. So, welcome back, Brenden! Smile

Second, the Google+ hangout and IRC Q+A session is going to be a little confusing for us tomorrow, as I doubt I’ll be there, so it will just be Brenden. We are trying to figure this out, so stay tuned!

Third, and most exciting, GB7 now has an operating system!! I was up until 2:00 AM last night working with my copy of Windows NT 4, working like crazy making GB7 OS! It’s low on features and doesn’t look very inviting, but it’s totally stable and runs on any computer with a floppy drive or VMWare (or VirtualBox or Virtual PC.) It is based off of the MikeOS project and I used a tutorial from Tinkernut. (www.youtube.com/gigafide or www.tinkernut.com) Big thanks to those two! I was only working on it for 3 hours and don’t know much about the language it’s written in, so I don’t have any programs, but GB7 OS comes with a few games and programs with it, so don’t worry about that! Winking smile How will I get it to you guys is the question. I can’t access the website for WordPress, our provider, so I made another website for downloads from GB7! Here is the link: http://www.gb7specialdownloads.webs.com. Here’s a screenshot for GB7 OS:

I took that screenshot an put it in Paint.NET (www.paint.net), and here are my color scheme hopes:

And here’s similar to what I want to get out of GB7 OS by 2014:

GB7OSFUTURE

 

Also, If you have a good name for the OS, please don’t hesitate! I don’t really like the name GB7 OS. We need a new, awesome one, and it’s up to you guys to give us a good one!

Thanks a ton for reading and I’ll keep you posted on GB7 OS! Winking smile
