> DOS > DexOS kick out

Cool and good luck, my "wikipedia" for DexOS was started about 2 -3 years ago, by someone, it was fine untill we change the name from "Dex4u" to "DexOS" and ever since, we have had notices about not enough links on google, you tell them you change the name so you should google Dex4u and its OK for a month or two, this time we did not bother and about 2 days ago they deleted the DexOS page, all i can say is, they make bill gates look like a monk.
I'm highly missamused by this arrogant act from Wiki censors

Yeah ... used to be in the Wiki discussion (deleted just some hours ago, I've seen it ... few minutes later it was no longer )
very unfair accusations about DexOS:
"not free" - by some FSF's fanatics with their absolute definition of "free" software - the software must be free, they pay much for the quad-core CPU's and > 1 TiB HD's required for their "free" Loonix
"no multitasking" - is it bad ??? Loonix lacks single-tasking
Other non-Wiki issues:
Is DexOS under development ? Would be nice to have the problems and lacks fixed:
- Full HD support, all partitions, FAT32, FAT16, FAT12, FAT+
- Install on HD like 16-bit DOSes do, METAKERN compatible
Allow stubbed MZ-DEX executables. Why ? To be able to create dual-mode
(standard DOS and DexOS) or triple-mode (additionally Win32/PE) executables.
- Check positions 5...8 for "DEX1" -> found ? -> load and run it
- if no, check for "MZ" -> no "MZ" -> reject the file
- if "MZ" present and filesize > $100 bytes, pick 32-bit number at positions $38..$3B -> second "DEX1" chance
- Is the new position >$100 and <(filesize-$100) -> recheck for "DEX1" there -> and load if found
Intentionally suggesting $38 for "DEX1" ... $3C is for "PE"
Bug Nr.: 12345
Title: Hello World program compiles to 100 KB !!!
Status: Closed: NOT a Bug

First thanks for your support NTOSKRNL_VXE .
As for "Other non-Wiki issues:"
We now have support for all these file sys:
FAT32, FAT16, FAT12.
And you can install it on a fat16 hdd drive, as DexOS users "bootprog" for boot loader
see here: http://alexfru.chat.ru/epm.html#bootprog
And thank for your Suggestion.
There is a demo program that can load a PE file into DexOS, so it only needs adding to kernel.
But to answer your main ? "Is DexOS under development ?", It's going to be released under GPL and its up to other coders to take it further, as i have taken it up to a stage where it use able for what i need it for.
So unless any projects, i am working on needs, something adding to it, i will not be add much more to kernel (i will be adding "FASMLIB" support).
