    Hello there!

    I've been workin' a couple of time on an app called Nindows VistaDS wich is a windows-like OS for the NDS. It's in an early state of development - V0.1 is the latest verson. It includes notepad and other programms will follow! If you're the developper of an app you would like to see included to vistaDS, just contact me!

    And here are a few screens from an older version:

    (at the moment there is trouble with freewebs. Sometimes it says "The page cannot be found". I hope this is fixed soon!)

    Yours

    Do you plan on making it comparable with DSOrgnize?

    Maybe sometimes you could compare it! But it's not as good as DSOrgnize at the moment.
    I saw DSlinux, a mac emulator but no windows.... so I started working on this [​IMG]

    You should ask other developers if you can incorporate their apps into your Vista, such as colors, the notepad app, and maybe incorporate a bootloader! But then again, i shoudnt be talking...

    Oh I forgot tha you have to hold L or R if you want to open something but only Notepad works!
    And if you have the newest version you should be able to click on the start button!

    Wow, looking pretty good [​IMG]. BakuFunn is right, Colors should be incorporated in this!

    This only thing thats really bugging me is the name... "Nindows" sounds pretty... weird if you ask me [​IMG]

    Make it skinnable as early as possible, and manage to make dragging files around with the stylus possible, and you'll be my hero.

    Much much better, but something about feels a little... um... cheesy? [​IMG]

    Do you have any plans for the app that you'd like to share DooDoo? I'm really interested in it so far.

    I didn't think that so much people would like it [​IMG]

    @GameDragon.... what 'bout only VistaDS?

    And plans.... erm....ya [​IMG]
    I would like to make it very easy to use und useful. So like an allround app for everyone. So you should be able to save things you've written and do calculatings, maybe minigames.... and if someone has an great idea for a new feature.... maybe I'll include it!


    I hope that these sentenses are meaningful.... sorry for my bad English!

    Why not help out with DSLinux? Should not take that long until the X-Window system works and is already equipped with a boot loader, working WiFi and other nifty things.

    And how you enter text? I see no keyboard emulation.
