My process simulator is coming along nicely, and I actually documented some of it today :) I've been adlibing data structures in Python, and thought I'd better document what it all means somewhere :)


I keep playing a little with BeOS. I have the personal version installed on my workstation. I just can't really get into it, and I'm trying to decide if it's BeOS or I'm just too set in my ways. I tend to rely on having quick access to a hetrogenous network of machines at my fingertips and random files spaces spread about on other machines. Between network transparency in X and automounted nfs drives I no longer tend to think in terms of just one machine, I just tend to run processes where they're appropriate. Thus when I switch to Windows or BeOS I suddenly find myself feeling straight jacketed.

Is it just me? I have friends who try to convince me that other stuff is better, and while I admit my X setup is server steps behind in evolution (ha), it suits me perfectly (see here).

What I really want to see is a QoS OS like Nemesis. Perhaps I should try to find time to write it, or at least start the ball rolling. Oh for more hours in the day :)
