I just got around to trying Jeff Raskin's in-developement "Archy Human Interface." Operating System. Right now it works on Winblowz. I was wondering if anyone else has tried it out. I think it is pretty cool! I came about it on Folklore.org when he died in Feb. 2005. I am going to see if i can get used to it and will explore it some more and post back on how easy it is to use. So far, there is an audio and video tutorial using the EXC 1-6 commands. Also it features a pretty nifty text editor.
They have a feature called "Jumping" using either of the Alt Keys and using the direction keys (arrow Keys)
I will check it out more and encourage the download by us fellow fritters. Even if you have to set up a 486 to do it. It doesn't demand much. Only about 5MB of built-in ram. I tried it out on Pentium 66MHz and found it quite zippy (the system right now runs on top of the Windows OS. I had Win 98SE on it)
So, tell me what you guys think of it.
