Linux will soon offer switchable x86-32 binary support

Not trolling but hasn't MacOS had support for 32 and 64 bit apps from the start? But they removed it in 12.15.

Haiku beta 4: BeOS rebuild / almost ready for release / A thing of beauty

Even better, give all computer systems a battery backup built in like most RAID cards have. Let everything finish writing, and shut down gracefully.

Redox OS version 0.8 is both strange and very familiar

"striking a happy compromise between a familiar user experience, a modern underlying design, and cutting-edge development tools."

Haiku does this today. And it supports rust, but it will not be rewritten in Rust.

There's a list of all the os projects written in Rust here:

Re: Graphical

Wouldn't it be nice if a home PC was as reliable as a vms system? A gui makes a system more crash prone, but in the case of vms, a gui crash would not bring down the system.

I have only seen BeOS crash rarely. Any futuristic system needs to be responsive to the user and a great system to program for, which is why Haiku is so exciting.

For a good overview of modern OS research, TUNES' wiki has a good page on this:

I've been following the CapROS project for a few years too. It followed up on EROS, the Extremely Reliable Operating System

The good thing about Rust is that it makes programmers more productive, afaict.

Interesting because chrome os used to do that too.

List of operating systems written in Rust

There's a list of operating systems written in Rust and quoted below:

There are several open source operating systems written in Rust. Most of them are proofs of concepts. The only system that goes a step further is redox. It comes with a window manager as well as basic applications like an editor and a file manager. Theseus is approaching maturity with the ability to execute legacy components in a WASM sandboxed environment.

Some are for embedded use or other research projects.

The point of this is to show that Rust can build show a solid, stable, secure system. The future of computers gets brighter all the time.

Craig Wright's crypto wallet claim against Bitcoin SV devs back before judges

Re: Forked money

This is how the silk road hacker was busted. He tried to cash in his bsv offshore so that he could buy more Bitcoin.

Doesn't this lawsuit also prove that bsv is fake? If he truly believed that bsv it's the better currency, CSW should want stolen bsv, not stolen Bitcoin.

Haiku has a minimal menu in the upper right corner, and it can be themed to look like amigaos or windows 2000.

Haiku is based on BeOS which is based on nextstep and openstep metaphors.

How obsequious. Gnu empowers users in a way that helps them make changes and improve the software.
