OCNix Requirements

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have set a few requirements for this OS to ensure that this operating system is at optimal quality for release...

These are not system requirements, rather more they are requirements for what the operating system should use.... Enough of my explaining...

RAM: 100mb MAX (50mb recommended)
HDD: 2gb MAX (1GB recommended)

Additional requirements:

The interface is polished upon initial use, but when a major program (built in programs have IDs, and when they are run (such as FurMark, or folding@home) is openned, the interface becomes minimal (like in Windows 7 where it goes to Windows 7 Basic theme for optimal experience). This way we make the OS pleasurable to the eyes but also very high performance when needed, WITH MINIMAL CODING REQUIRED!))

Yes, but I need for the dev to follow these guidelines, if they do not, then the OS will be a flop and rendered nearly useless for its intended purpose.

Let's worry more about meeting the requirements of the distribution (e.g. providing a benchmarking, stress testing, and monitoring environment). Aesthetics are the last thing that should be worried about. OCNix is not supposed to be Ubuntu (or the like) and it is also not designed (nor intended) to run Windows software (see FurMark). Install to HDD is a possible feature of OCNix but is not 100% within the goal. OCNix's prime goal is to be a Live CD for benchmarking, stress testing and monitoring (and possibly a simple F@H runner depending on legal issues).

Somehow I missed this post. This is probably the most untrue statement I've read in a while. "Looks" have nothing to do with OCNix. OCNix will not be a flop if it doesn't look like Windows 7 and run Windows software. In fact if it did meet those specifications it would in fact then be a flop. OCNix's mission is simple and straightforward. Please don't get confused with this as people creating similar "requirements" of their own led to the last break in development.

Maybe I did not word that right, but benchmarking is ideal here. About the style... you are very right, but for decent use, this is a must, and it requires very little extra coding...

I am simply posting my suggestions made on common sense, if you need me to elaborate, or re-word, I will, at least I am not like most whom have their head in the clouds/in a fairytale and just throw ideas that will never work out there.
