Stepping away for a bit

Jun 14, 2009 at 1:19 AM
Hi guys,

I'd might as well make this official. I'm stepping away from MOSA for a
bit. And I'll probably be closing down the Ensemble mailing list, until
I can re-evaluate the OS's goals. The past few months I've been trying
to piece together different pieces of a runtime and, surprise surprise,
just can never find enough time in a big enough block to really code.
Most times that I sit down at the computer, I take half the time trying
to remember what I wanted to fix or add where.

I'm sure you're not surprised by this, seeing as how I've been
nonexistent. But I thought I'd toss it out just to clear any doubt.

Since most of you are also on the Ensemble mailing list, expect an
equivalent mail over there in a little bit. Ensemble's not being shut
down. Just in cold hibernation until I can see what goals are to be
added, removed, whatever. Most likely I'll take it back to being a
"hosted environment user space OS" of sorts, running on top of Mono/.Net
depending on the platform, until I can wrap my head around more of the
compiler and runtime internals needed to contribute to MOSA.

Take care guys, and good luck. I'll be around.

Well, we're sad to see you "go" - but the way things have petered out in the C# OS community, I can personally definitely understand.

Feel free to drop by when you are feeling "spunky" in the C# OS department. We could always use a good word.
