Kolibri – A 3 MB (GUI)Operating System

No I’m not drunk! Kolibri desktop is a small 3MB Operating System, that is written entirely in machine code (CPU Language) and is not based on Linux, Windows or any other variants. What is surprising is the number of applications packed into this tiny file size. There are a whole bunch of games, a basic tables editor, a compiler, a text editor, a bouquet of demos, a text based web browser and more. There is also DosBox, which let’s you run almost any DOS game on Kolibri. While not meant for serious use, the tiny OS shows how bloated Windows and Linux really are. Kolibri is a small x86 assembler hobby operating system. It forked off MenuetOS in 2004 and has mostly been developed by ex-USSR community since. API and ABI is being enreached with developer-friendly features. User interface is not that good yet but we are trying to improve it as well. Your feedback is very appreciated, although help would always be much more valuable. Current release introduces several kernel, app

Each had its pros and cons but ultimately none fit the bill. So I decided to create my own.   Illustration : ClipClip Illustration : ClipClip showing Screenshot Illustration : ClipClip showing the files to be copied, the links can be modified and saved Features include : - Text monitoring and modify Image monitoring and modify File list view and modify Audio modify and capture Clipboard clear function Refresh to refresh the contents of the Clipboard Please note that I’ve not included a hook to the clipboard. While this eliminates the chance for a dynamic monitoring and editing, it also improves security and most importantly enhances usability and makes it lightweight and independent of user
