Yes, the technical term for Pyxis is OE (Operating Environment). Version 1 was a true OS since it was written low level and even instanced it’s own Virtual CPU.
It should do most things you want it to in it’s current state. Mind that it is BETA and there are changes in the works. We’ve sped up render time significantly; completely removed ALL traces of WPF, put apps in to their own AppDomains and a few other things as well.
Things are a bit crazy at the moment but as soon as it slows down the 2nd Beta (and possibly release candidate) will be made available.
Oh and Architect as I pointed out in the other thread; please feel free to send any feature requests along and I’ll do my best to work them into the next release if I haven’t already.
