Hope it turns out great! Would love to dual boot it once it's released, depending on how it turns out.

We want to start this topic to show everyone some development, FAQ, QnA, Previews, Alpha/Beta Build, etc., etc. I will be uploading some FAQ's very soon, and I will talk to the team about uploading a pic of the OS's current state, but we want to build some hype also. Dont want to let the cat out the bag too soon. ;)

So what's the point in starting this thread right now when you have basically nothing to tell us and zero to show us? I don't get it.

I don't think there will ever be a point where they is actually anything to show us. If they've been working on it since July, are only 45% done and reckon they're going to get 50% more done in the next couple of weeks, it's probably safe to brand this "vaporware".

This.

I'd love to be proven wrong, though, as his mockup does indeed look quite nice.

Can't stand these pointless threads. Start one if you actually have something to say or show, if you don't don't.

Just checked out the OP's profile (he's 18) and webiste (which is remarkably empty).

Like I said in my first post, this is someone biting off way, way more than they can chew. That someone has a lot of learning to do.

I remember reading the thread back in July and thinking that the concept work looked like it would be an interesting OS to use.

However, I agree with the majority here in that there is nothing worthwhile in this thread. You could have easily just told us in the other thread that you were about ready to release documentation. In fact, you did on October 6th.

On the subject of the website...yeah, that needs some serious work. The title sums it all up at the moment, "Just another WordPress site," and one without anything to show to the World.

I'm still interested to see what becomes of this (especially given the insanely tight deadline you've set yourself in the first post), I just don't understand why this thread is here when the other one is just as informative, if not more so.

You have no base to what your saying! Where are you even getting that "I am biting off more than I can chew"? And you think I have a lot of learning to do? I would like to know how you came about that conclusion also since you know nothing about me, you just need to stop trolling.

This thread is here for a few reasons, the other one was called "Codename: Fusion OS" we have obliviously come a lot farther than that, and also because this section is much more appropriate for the topic. Im glad your interested in the project, there will be a lot coming from us, very soon! :)

Development did not start till one month ago. We were making desisions, and UI adjustments until then. We have gotten the 45% done in only a few weeks. This is not vaporware, if people would have some common sense to read the the post that I have posted you WILL SEE that I said we will be releasing screenshots BEFORE the Alpha is out but NOT QUITE YET. Please stop making judgements when you dont know all the information.

Once again, start a thread when you actually have to show or tell us something. Not before. This is 100% pointless...

This thread is not pointless I have made many posts specifically at least one to you, that explains it. And the first reason this thread was created was to announce the Alpha in 1-2 weeks!

You told us nothing concrete about the the operating system's features, nor did you show us anything beyond months old concepts. And even those concepts show little more than ripped-off icons, a semi-transparent bar (hello Mac OS X), Start Menu (hello Windows XP) and a Dock (hello Mac OS X again).

Here you are again with a whole new thread in November and still nothing to show.

I really wonder what will materialize out of this.

He did have something to say, announcement about a project that was discussed in June.

What is your problem? he's let those who are interested in the project know that they are still working on it and expect to have an alpha out in 2 weeks, if you don't care about the project and whether they will even finish it or not then thats great don't moan here i don't want to scroll through 3 pages of you and tomjol moaning that the project may fail, who cares if it fails or not theres no need to be immature about it and put down other peoples efforts.

Everyone should just give up and not attempt anything because you may fail, thank you .Neo/tomjol for such useful advice :rolleyes:

And this is why people very frequently "drop off the scene", because of trolling like this. I'm not a Linux fan, but I probably would be if there was a version were I very rarely had to touch command line. With that being said, since this is the goal of Fusion OS...what if this distro became bigger than Ubuntu? Became the best distro out there?

My point is simply this....quit heckling the guy. Because your comments may very well hurt more people than just him if he decides to stop working on this because you guys want to be a-holes about it.

And to the OP...good luck! I'll be trying it out myself if indeed you achieve a point where command line is very rarely used.

So what exactly is there to announce beyond what was already said in the other thread that requires a new one?

That would be the perfect excuse wouldn't it? :)

Me and others are trying to understand what the deal is here. Since early summer absolutely nothing materialized beyond some extremely simple mockups. Everyone with basic Photoshop knowledge can whip up two semi-transparent bars, download some icons + wallpaper from the internet and merge them all together in a single file. Let's be honest here, after many months that's still the only thing we've seen from project.

Maybe I'm missing something... is it just a pretty looking Linux distro...?

Or does it bring something new to the table?

Either way I can't wait to see how it'll turn out. :)

Is it too late to suggest that you incorporate some of the concepts behind the old SymphonyOS? http://ftp.sun.ac.za/ftp/iso-images/mezzo/MezzoGreypaper.pdf

Your link isn't working. ;)

I really dont understand your problem. But whatever. How are you not understand this? There are things that have "materialized" we are not showing them as of now. Do you think we just sat around and did nothing? Because I dont understand what you are getting at with all theses posts trying to bring us down. I don't get what your issues are but it's really getting old. If you wait, we will show you the results. I am planning on uploading a screen shot of a recent build tomorrow. Along with a small post about it.

I don't have a problem. I'm just wondering why we haven't seen anything beyond those extremely simplistic mockups from June. That's it. Let's move on because I really don't want start a fight or anything.

That said, I am looking forward to see what you did with the interface. So I'll definitely be checking out this thread tomorrow. :)

That they are using this thread to keep us updated and we're to expect some new content in 2 weeks time, this part here.

We will be ready to release an alpha build of Fusion OS in 1-2 weeks which will contain and almost final User Interface.

I understand exactly where you are coming from though as there is a lot of vaporware out there, but just reading over the comments here they really aren't needed this is a tech community and we all know the fail rate for projects whether its due to a natural disaster or just lack of time/motivation/commitment it would just be nice to at least give them a chance rather then immediately dismissing their efforts, who knows someone could have an idea and not be able to complete and someone else could come across it and become interested and possibly take over the project them self (or make their own similar one) it's not that harmful to get the idea out there

      Fedora 31 will reach its end of life next Tuesday
      by Paul Hill



      The Fedora Project has announced that Fedora 31 will reach its end of life on 24 November 2020. The announcement comes just weeks after the launch of Fedora 33 which included GNOME 3.38 and BTRFS as the default file system.

      After next Tuesday, Fedora 31 will stop receiving vital security updates leaving your system open to exploitation as new vulnerabilities are discovered. To make sure that your system stays protected, you should upgrade to a later version; to do this, simply open Software and go to the Updates tab, there you should see a bigger banner offering you a Fedora upgrade.

      Once you begin the upgrade with this method, the required files will be downloaded and then your system will ask to reboot to install the files in a similar fashion to how normal updates work. When the upgrade is complete, the system will automatically reboot into the new release.

      In the Fedora documentation, it says:

      If you do not want to upgrade your system, you also have the option of downloading a fresh copy of Fedora 33 which was released last month. Whether you upgrade your system or do a clean install, ensure that you’ve backed up all of your important files.

      The new Intel Open FPGA Stack is geared towards easing development of custom platforms
      by Ather Fawaz



      Today at the Intel FPGA Technology Day, Intel showed off its newest offering in the eASIC lineup, the eASIC N5X. Alongside it, the tech giant also debuted its Open FPGA Stack (Intel OFS), a scalable, source-accessible hardware and software infrastructure meant to power customized, high-performance workloads.

      Distributed via git repositories, the Intel OFS will be geared towards easing the process of development and deployment on FPGAs by enabling greater code reusability and modularity. Vendors will be able to provide native support to third parties and proprietary Intel-OFS platforms, this would lead to greater portability across Intel FPGA platforms and enable native support across major OS vendor distributions. All of this would lead to a smaller barrier to entry, enabling increased adoption of FPGAs in the industry.

      "With the proven success from our early-access customers, we are excited to launch the Intel Open FPGA Stack, with its demonstrated ability to dramatically both reduce the development time and also increase code and hardware design reuse for customers and partners looking to accelerate their workloads,” said Dave Moore, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Programmable Solutions Group.

      If you are interested in trying out Intel OFS, it is currently in early access. For details on that, as a starting point, you should contact an Intel sales representative. The firm aims to provide assistance regarding the same over the next year. For more details, you may refer to this blog post.

      About 3 months ago I switched my  Operating system to Arch after being a distro hopper playing around with the Ubuntu Variants and never feeling quite satisfied.  Where I work, we use Ubuntu based systems and I have grown quite comfortable in the command line experience and I felt like it was time to switch to a different OS.  Until then, I had used and have experience in Centos, Ubuntu, Solus linux and Fedora Linux.  What drove me to switch and make the choice to switch over, I  was getting tired of reading about kernel updates being pushed out fixing security bugs and also adding different functions.  While I can honestly say that my day to day activities don't require the latest and greatest kernel and software, it made sense to me especially when I would read about new software being released and then days or weeks before Canonical would certify it and release it to the general community.  I understand why they do this and I chose to move on. 
       
      Arch itself tends to hold the notion that you have to compile all the software you want to use and it's a harder system to use.  I can honestly say that this is partially true, but what people fail to tell you is that the compiling is done automatically by the package manager (Pacman in this case).  If you are comfortable with the command line, and even if not, you can certainly install Arch or use an installer to do it for you.  I used Anarchy installer which basically formats your drive for you, and you select whatever software you want and then it installs it.  It does the heavy lifting.  When finished, you are booted into your Shiny new Arch system with the Desktop Environment you chose.  In my case, it is always KDE.
       
      When I moved to Arch, I quickly found that not only do I have access to the latest and greatest builds, but also a lot of the alpha/beta versions of software.  For instance, I am running the "Bleeding Edge" version of Thunderbird mail which is in the alpha channels for testing.  You can't always do this with other systems.  i also have been able to experiment with different kernel versions.  Usually when I get updates, I have the most recent stable kernel release. 
       
      For things I have done with Arch - aside from my Desktop, I have a PXE boot server installed on my NAS which is also using Arch and other server software on it.  My PXE server allows me to boot into clonezilla or fresh install Arch if I need to (really don't need to), without having any external installation media handy (Thumb drives usually).
       
      Anyway, I have found my final Operating System and couldn't be any happier!

      Debian Project selects “Homeworld” theme for Debian 11
      by Paul Hill



      Debian 11 “Bullseye” is due sometime in 2021 and in preparation it has selected a theme called Homeworld that will be prevalent throughout the operating system. The Homeworld theme was created by Juliette Taka and is inspired by the German Bauhaus art movement which has its beginnings in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

      Users will come into contact with the Homeworld theme in several places when they use Debian 11. One of the first times will be in the Debian installer where the banner carries the Homeworld artwork. Debian 11 also includes a Homeworld background and a Homeworld-theme login screen.

      Following a call for proposing themes, a total of eighteen choices were submitted. A desktop artwork poll was opened up to the public and it received 5,613 responses which ranked the different choices. The Homeworld theme came out on top and will be used in Debian 11.

      If you’ve ever run Debian 8 or Debian 9 on your system, you’ll have come across Juliette Taka’s artwork already, she was the author behind the Lines and softWaves themes which were used in those two releases.

      Debian 13 will be called 'Trixie' after Toy Story dinosaur
      by Paul Hill



      The Debian Project has announced that the codename name of Debian 13 is Trixie. Debian 13 is expected to be released sometime in 2025. Alongside the new name, the project announced that Debian 11 would reach its transition and essentials freeze on 12 January 2021; this is considered the first milestone of Debian 11 which is due for release later in 2021.

      The codename Trixie comes from the blue dinosaur in Toy Story 3. Ever since 1996, the Debian Project has opted for Toy Story codenames and has so far used Buzz, Rex, Bo, Hamm, Slink, Potato, Woody, Sarge, Etch, Lenny, Squeeze, Wheezy, Jessie, Stretch, Buster, Bullseye, and Bookworm. The current version, Debian 10 ‘Buster’ was released in July 2019 and will receive security support until 2022 and long-term support until 2024.

      As long as everything stays on schedule, Debian 11 ‘Bullseye’ should come out in 2021 and receive long-term support until 2026, Debian 12 ‘Bookworm’ will arrive in 2023 and get long-term support until 2028, and Debian 13 ‘Trixie’ will arrive in 2025 and receive long-term support until 2030.

      With regards to the upcoming Debian 11 freeze, package maintainers are being asked to evaluate their plans going forward. Once the freeze occurs, the Debian Project does not want large or disruptive changes to packages as this could make them unstable. Having reliable software in Debian is very important for the project because it is the basis of other distributions such as Ubuntu.
