Announcing: PonyOS 8
3 projects | /r/osdev | 31 Mar 2022
In case it's not clear, PonyOS is a joke reskin of my serious OS project, ToaruOS. PonyOS gets a new release every April 1st. All of the libraries and applications in ToaruOS are in-house things I built myself - the whole OS is "built from scratch". PonyOS adds ponysay, which is an external app originally written in Python - and in previous releases of PonyOS I shipped the Python version alongside a port of Python 3.6. This release, though, comes with a port to my own language, Kuroko, which is a dialect of Python - a lot of what went into building the PonyOS release this year was getting ponysay to work well.
