This year, i decided to set some goals concerning my participation to JNode. For the end of 2012, i would like to :
1) Finish HFS+ implementation for JNode. It means complete (and working) implementation of read and write operations.
2) Improve USB storage support for JNode.
I hope to get there but, as usual, any help is welcome.
I am putting a request to both you. I dont know will it be possible or not!
Can u add email service to the site eg: if any new post comes, the email should appear to users?
I just visited the blog of James Gosling, the inventor of Java, and read an interesting comment, where somebody mentioned JNode. So I came here and looked at these pages, the git repository, the status of this project and see that it's worth keep sticking at it.
It's a really nice project and I think it can be a good alternative for Embedded Devices, Smartphones, maybe for Jailbroken iPads and maybe also for the Desktop. Let's see
Sorry for all these posts.
You could also add support for better syncing between this and the common OSs so this project can feel better adoption. The world needs another useful desktop OS. Phones are all the fab, but that will go soon. Find other Java OS projects and gather more info and code from them-I have listed a few here:
JX:OS based on Java micro kennel, very small made for competition with UNIX. It contains language based protection and inter process communication. View it at http://www4.informatik.uni-erlangen.de/Projects/JX/index.html
JOS:Another Java OS not so much known see it at http://jos.sourceforge.net/
JAW OS: A Java OS made mainly to run Java web apps see it at http://jawos.sourceforge.net
Like I said earlier I love your project. Java is coming back into fashion and I hear JAVA to the power of 10. I think people now will find this project interesting and useful with virtual machine's sake. Just keep it active!
This has a potential to be bot a common PC OS for normal folks because there are so many Java apps around (hope Oracle doesn't kill Java Store) and a Server OS for running Java EE apps.
Jnode has great potential!
