Guys! I was trying to get DexOS, but it looks like the website was removed. On this section's FAQ, the website address also points to that dead link. Where can I find DexOS?
I have only a vague idea of what it is about. I'm not sure if it's what I'm looking for, but I'm interested anyway. Is it no longer an active project? I understand it's DOS-like, but 32bit protected mode, right?

Thank you, prostyle!
@sleepsleep: I did PM Dex, but he wouldn't reply, so I decided to post here. He's probably busy.

Now that I start considering OS development, I encounter several new difficulties: BIOS services are almost completely obsolete and it's risky to rely on them, even at boot time, UEFI is coming, the partitioning format is being changed and because of the 4G limitation, everybody's moving to 64bit mode when I'm starting to understand the inside of 32bit mode! Ha, ha... I hope I don't get stuck in the attempt.
