Quote from: Ivoah on January 25, 2016, 03:23:19 amAwesome! It's always great to see new progress on KOS, especially in the field of I/O. How far off do you think installing packages is?
Quote from: SiphonicSugar on January 25, 2016, 03:45:43 amWait, does this completely replace the operating system?
Quote from: SiphonicSugar on January 25, 2016, 04:19:59 amAnd can it calculate math problems just like the regular OS?

It can be ported to other calculators that have a similar architecture to the existing ones, but porting it to anything else would be difficult. It might be possible with a lot of work towards making it more modular and with better drivers and interfaces to hardware. Would be easier once the kernel can be compiled with scas, I think.
Quote from: DJ Omnimaga on January 16, 2016, 06:49:48 amSo it would be like when we develop Nspire Clickpad/Touchpad games? IIRC, most Ndless and Lua games made for the grayscale models required no work to be ported to the CX and you could even implement colors and they would display as grayscale on the grayscale models.
Quote from: SirCmpwn on January 25, 2016, 03:26:06 amBad news - it'll be Linux only unless anyone cares enough to port it to something else.
