Sad News...

Well most of us here know Smurf as our head developer. We have lost him recently which means I have to take over as project admin. My time does not allow for this at the moment. So because of this reason LinksOS design will start with a bang towards the end of November. I will launch a new site with great features plus many other great tools.

I will be looking for a commited team to work on the project so if you are interested please drop me a line.... read more

Still looking for people!

We are still looking for people!

Are you an experienced coder? Are you bored? Are you full of ideas? Or do you feel that what you are doing now doesn't challenge you?

Project Update

I thought you might want to know what is going on.

1. The Kernel Team is designing kernel like the process managment, memory managment and also the an API that the servers can use with or with a functional kernel.

2. I'm doing a small article called LinksOS, which basicly contains all of our OS design. And I hope will grow into a reference manuel for developers.

Has our website been hacked??

Was our website hacked by our rivals or is there a technical reason why some folders have been deleted?

Can't reach website

Our webhosting seems to slow the last few days. So if your getting time outs on our website please be patient and refresh the page and it will show up.

Help wanted


LinksOS is still at its design stages. To get things going faster we need help. However I'm not looking for developers but for people who want to monitor the mailinglist and comment or post their own ideas on how the OS should do things.

Basicly first things I want is a good and full website as our website is our greeting card and the first thing allot of people will see.

Second: Make a project plan. I think all major steps should be decided before we start doing anything else.
