"No one understands THIS ISN"T A WINDOWS. It's a OS!"

September 16, 2011  |  By versitalbear

 |  Version: The LoseThos Operating System 7.04

Pros

This is the first "TOTAL" REMAKE of the first operating system, don't confuse it with Windows, which is a GUI not a OS. Windows didn't start using it's own OS until after Win98SE then they never really rebuilt that OS from scratch, like LoseThos has.

Cons

Still needs a lot of community work to get it up to a full operating system, then to add a GUI like Windows is. The only con is many think it replaces Windows, LoseThos is an operating system not a GUI (Graphic User Interface) like Windows is!

Summary

So far I see people who have tried this Operating System and didn't like it because the graphics was poor and was picky on the hardware yo9u can use so far. ONLY BECAUSE EVERYONE BELIEVES THIS IS A GUI (Graphic User Interface) LIKE WINDOWS, WHEN IT IS AN OPERATING SYSTEM NOT A GUI. For those who believe this is a windows replacement, you will be disappointed! It is a OS not a GUI. Windows 2.01 threw Windows 98SE, used the OS called DOS (Disk Operating System) When Microsoft could not claim the whole system as their own they made their own MSOS (MicroSoft Operating System) to replace their dependance on the DOS they used at first, then with Windows after Windows 98SE, they switched to their own OS called MSOS and made it inaccessible to the user. The only way to use MSOS is threw the use of their GUI Microsoft Windows. Making it possible to lock users out of the raw machine use the way the old DOS allowed users to do, so users of Windows could no longer make any changes without going threw the GUI to make those changes. Basically locking people out of the very basic functions of a computer.
LoseThos, IS AN OPERATING SYSTEM and not meant to be anything like Windows, a GUI needs to be created for this OS so it has the look and feel of Windows but as it is IT IS NOT A GUI LIKE WINDOWS.
All Operating Systems offer a way to control your computer DIRECTLY and not needing the use of a GUI, I have compared the MSOS Windows versions after Windows 98SE switched to and I believe that LoseThos is extremely superior to that system because it does not simply offer the familiar "C:>" prompt like DOS and MS-DOS used and the no prompt offered with the new MSOS, but offers a never before used graphics engine that no other OS ever offered. I think this is why people believe it is suppose to be like Windows when they are two different systems all together.
Basically a OS is a set of machine codes that makes using your computer possible where the more recognized Windows, which is nothing more than a way to make it easier for the users of the computer deal with the complexity that all OS's have, making a computer easy enough to use for nearly anyone, but no matter ho9w you slice it Windows is nothing more than a Graphic User Interface between the computer user and the Operating System.
In all education and years of experience, I feel LoseThos is the most advanced Operating System "EVER" and with work and the later introduction of a GUI like Windows it could and likely will, take the computer world by storm and run over and past Windows on many levels. I am so excited about this OS I could simply die! I am currently working on a way that it can auto-detect and configure any computer components, video, communications, input/output, and such, which with this totally new way to operate and control the computer, which allows for simple and easy ways to make installation far less painful than Windows ever was.
LoseThos in my opinion was needed 20 years ago because it offers so much error correction and abilities that no OS has ever in the past that I can clearly see a system that makes Windows look like a child's toy because I cannot see any indications a "blue screen of death" could ever happen with this insightful new approach to a really functional computer Operating System. After all, the original DOS that was used threw all windows versions including Windows 98SE, was originally made decades ago with the only real upgrade when Windows came out with a slightly better version MSOS that all Windows past Windows 98se uses, but as for increased functionality for the operating system really is like the telephone, it hasn't changed much at all over the years, where LoseThos has started from scratch and offers a completely new and innovated method of running a computer.
So far, when I used the components it can currently recognize, I can see a 593% decrease in memory needed to run the OS, it is not dependent on a bit length like Windows at 8,16,32,64, and 128 bit words, so the bit word length is able to expand when the computers are made in larger bit lengths, it is not dependent on exact memory locations like Windows so a properly converted windows program, a converted apple, or converted MAC, program will run flawlessly within its matrix. and hundreds of other things that could only be done one way with other OS's now can have dozens of ways to achieve the same thing, making a crash next to impossible, (about a 99.995% unlike Windows crash rate at 64.319% ) making a system so stable it may never ever crash.
I took the 64 bit version of Notepad and converted it to run in LoseThos and it took nearly 3 meg of disk space and 1.6 meg of memory to run it, where I wrote a notepad clone that only took 1.2k of disk space and .98k of memory. to make things better, the notepad clone (with the excat same functions as windows Notepad) ran 482% faster.
This is a great OS but "IT IS NOT" a GUI!
LoseThos has a huge future!

"Would not boot. Looks like it tries, but continues to try to boot in a loop."

 |  Version: The LoseThos Operating System 3.08

Pros

Nothing so far. Although I'm not quite sure what Pandolfi downloaded (See his review). Maybe the computer I am booting from has an AMD processor, but this should not have any affect.

Cons

Doesn't boot.
