1. Latest OSFree SourceCode!
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
The latest source code for OSFree is now at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu for anyone to download. The date is 05-2003. The person who posted it said they thought it is now a 'dead project'. With the source code now available, anyone could work on it or use it as a basis for their own operating system (?) Even though I am not a programmer, I thought it would be neat to look at the source code (even if it is only as learning experience).

PS http://www.osfree.com has not been updated in a couple of years (IIRC). http://www.freeos.cjb.net is no longer there (at least not for FreeOS). http://sourceforge.net/projects/nudawn still does not have any files to release and there seems little activity there.

I have a feeling that they were overwhelmed by the magnitude of the project(s). Perhaps someone will pick up where they left off (?).

4. Re:Latest FreePM SourceCode!
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I found the latest (over a year ago datewise) source code/files for FreePM at http://frepm.sourceforge.net . I am considering downloading it and uploading it to http://hobbes.nmsu.edu (the project seems to have been abandoned).

PS Some one could use these source codes as basis for their own operating system or work to continue the project.

I tried all the e-mail addresses at http://www.osfree.org but they all seem invalid (not one was able to go trhough).
