***Better documentation***

Programming examples: A hello world program would be nice!
Also small programs showing how to use the system calls...

I list of the the system calls, In a common modern format! (I want to program not making weird file conversions)

Could be the start of something...

Yep, I'm talking Hardware sprites, mixed with the 4096 pallette. Image and presentation is everything? I think  :-\

Well, there is a version for the CPC Plus, using a hardware sprite as mouse pointer (http://www.colorado-boys-muenchen.de/users/futureos/files/FutureOS_System_.8_Preview!!!.zip   Use the file: Preview_FutureOS-ROMs_.8_Deutsch.dsk).
But I must admit, at the moment there is only a german version, since I had nearly no international interrest on the Plus version.
But good to know, that there is at least some interrest, so I will integrate a English language interface... which takes some time... the more people want it, the faster I'll do it ;)
 
The Plus version also allows the access of the memory mapped I/O groups.
 
You can take a look at the mulitcolor mouse pointer of the Plus vesion here:

Well, "Image and presentation" is very important if you want to sell a product of if you just want to become market leader. This is also true for the CPC sector, we've seen.
But to use up my time and energy just for the surface was never my intention, I prefer(red) to use my time to do my projects in good quality.
A flashing advertisment doesn't sell you a good car  ;)  I mean finally time is limited, so we all have to choose carfully for what we use it.
