Hard drive

Well I downloaded the .iso file and ran it in VMWare. It worked alright, but was pretty sluggish. I have a question: when you start Jnode from the CD on a real machine does it use the hard drive for anything?
More importantly, will it leave any files or do anything to my files all ready on it? (I have Windows XP installed.)

Status of JNode

What is the status of JNode? Is JNode dead? The Ohloh status look not good.

I think about to contribute to the project. But is it not clear what is working and what not. All the pages look very old. As I have the last look on JNode there was many problems in the VM self. Are this fixed? Without a working VM it make no sense to work on the OS.

The Browser in Eclipse (instead of Firefox)


I think it's not really a problem, that Firefox is not usable (because it's not Java). The Browser what is inside of Eclipse is very good. I think it's a part of the SWT-library from IBM. http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-SWT-browser-widget/browser.html

Yesterday I started the Apache Lenya CMS in Eclipse and it worked properly, even the Ajax & JavaScript-Stuff what the WYSIWYG-editor Bitflux is using works properly.

An alternative to SWT would be e.g. http://lobobrowser.org/java-browser.jsp
