I'd like one of you more computer savvy people to try Temple OS

by Simmons (no login)


You can download an ISO there. I successfully installed it in virtualbox.

Its esthetics are dosshell like to me, but there is a lot of significance in Temple OS (especially the command line) that is lost on me.

The most interesting part of Temple OS is that it has been entirely developed by one man, who just happens to be schizophrenic. He has developed this operating system to talk to God, and God has been instructing him on how to make it.

He wrote his own compiler, development language (Holy C), kernel, grep, etc; all from scratch. Seems like a remarkable feat to a layman such as myself. All to some insane ends that only Terry (the developer) knows.

THe most interesting part are his rants and ramblings he posts on his website, and twitter account. He think's he's being followed by the CIA.

If one of you lads could tell me what you think of the OS, I'd appreciate it. I'm having trouble figuring out some of the command basics. Terry expects the users to have quite a bit of skill with operating systems already, and doesn't think very much of people who don't (as evidenced in some of his life streams)
