Just posting up 1 month of work on new OS for for Arm arch.Ever since me and my friends got hold of this great piece of hardware we were thrilled for it's possibilities.But quite disappointed at non responsive UI and dry apps we decided to simplify it a bit (and then it's bytes).
Work is still in beta stage and current demo is meant to showcase the potential of ARM chip.The current desktop manager feature very minimalistic set up.It has control panel to list basic hardware info and bash shell.Interface binding is mainly driven by python at the moment with Qt and OpenGL ES.We also managed to run animated OpenGL ES desktop.Although it sucks up juice of SoC but it seems fun to show it for a while.
And one more thing....
It feature an amazingly cool interface to access GPIO. We have name it 'Yoke'. The screenshots attached below are prototyped in image editor to closely resemble the real one.We don't have anything running to capture it live in current desktop manager.You can see it in action in video below:
I'll be posting up updates soon in forum.We are currently tangled in application compatibility layer.Please let us know your thoughts on project and would like to help us out in problems.
