Well, I am currently adding FAT12 support for DaNoOS 0.15, and 0.20 will have it's own filesystem, the DFS. Anyway, 0.15 will be 16-bit (real mode) and 0.20 will be 32-bit.


to change from a filesystem that almost all other OSes support to a filesystem that only your OS support isn't a clever choice...

it works, but not when there are no characters that can be removed

erm... it's obvious that Robomod tried to write something first before pressing the backspace key... well, if he didn't then shame on him

BadSector your small os is verry good i like it
(tested on my laptop)


thanks, but isn't anything special. I made it a very long time ago. If i was going to make an OS today it would be a lot better..

why it shouldn't? As i said LR/OS, even if small, is a complete operating system.

I know some c programming and a tiny bit of asm,you know where i can pick up a good Nasm tutorial ?


no. I just read NASM's documentation (and a question to all: why everybody wants to find a "good book" or a "gook tutorial" for a language/compiler when this lang/comp already has very detailed documentation ? This happens very ofter and with many of my friends too...")

Yes, although the author can relicense the code under another license, the code licensed under the GPL will always be available and remain licensed under the GPL (which is different from becoming public domain. Basically you'd have GPLed and non-GPLed code that is the same).

But can you retroactively un-gpl everything? I remember there was a little thing about GPL or Stencl license over SEAL 2...

So in the end, one considering making their software open source or free software should seriously consider the BSD license or something similar (e.g. MIT License), since it provides true freedom to everyone to use, copy, modify, and sell a piece of software.

I agree, and I use the BSD license for RMF-DOS and Dapple.

Of course proprietary software wouldn't be nearly as bad if software copyrights only lasted 4 years before software became public domain and (much more limited) software patents only lasted 2 years. That, along with the legalization of reverse engineering (so long as none of the techniques used are patented), would help the entire industry.

I agree with you, although I say 5 years for both.

GPL does NOT MEAN FREEWARE. It means Free Software (as in Libre Software, not Gratis Software). It also does not mean non-commercial distribution. You can charge whatever you want for the distribution of the software. Since commercial distribution is the distribution of software for profit, this means that you can commercially distribute Free Software.

We need a word like "libert" in the English language. Japanese's "jiy" works too Mr Green

well, i wouldn't expect it to use a command.com internal to get directory listings, however it does go through DOS since it doesn't mount the FAT partition and read/write it directly...


or more correctly through DPMI, which hands it off to DOS...
