    4sec isn't much time wasted from your day.

    A few things have come up since this thread took a break

    1. I played with kolibriOS. Impressive and full of promise
    2. I discovered the Color Maximite 2. Started another thread about it. So I'm inspired to port some of the kolibriOS apps to the maximite 2.

    It's really exciting to me. That device is powerful enough to do many mainstream
    things due to the lack of operation system drag.

    I had been designing a trilogy fantasy rpg for the C64 but, maybe, it'll go to the maximite.

    The issue there is that KolibriOS-specific software is generally
    written in x86 assembly, but the Maximite 2 uses an ARM CPU. So it
    would be more like rewriting the software than porting it.

    Still, if you've got some specific things in mind then it could be
    good for inspiration.
