During the week, the 五OS project has been resumed. This project is aimed at creating an OS for end-users with a really fast boot by including all vital parts in the kernel.
Also, in order to make easier for the users, there will be no need to deal with things such as shells, etc… to get the OS installed.
I’ve taken over the USB driver developpement, while BombStrike will work on the process scheduler in order to fix a few glitches that were reported.
While this happens, I’m still working on TuxTelecom althrough the service is now owned by Mutum Sigillum LLC. I get to play with the central while real service will be initiated soon.
The final service will of course include regular phone calls, but it will also include ability to send SMS to the world, and maybe to receive those too (in order to receive SMS you’ll need a special plan. Everyone with credit on their accounts will be able to send messages).
Finally, a new non-open source project I’m working on : libthor (threaded torrent library). This cross-platform library will allow anyone to build applications handling torrents (load a torrent, seed it, etc).
Well, that’s basically everything to this week’s news. See you next week !
