Long Weekend

Just another quick note on Strata progress.  Not much in the way of new milestones to report today.  I've been continuing work on the file manager and other core apps and things are progressing pretty well.  This weekend is a Labor Day weekend in the US and I will be using the long weekend to focus as completely on Strata as possible.  I will be posting more updates with screenshots of the as yet unseen Aria Desktop (The screenshot on the project homepage was a proof of concept and does not reflect the final UI design) over the weekend.  Things have been quiet on the forums and in the comments here but I will keep on posting and keep on working on getting that pre-alpha release out.


  1. Things ARE rather quiet. I'm in the middle of my degree so I havn't had much time to check up on you. I'm interested in seeing how you'll implement the UI.

  2. Yeah, that has been a big issue with this plan. One reason things are taking so long is that I keep scrapping pieces and going back to the drawing board. Unlike other Symphony releases I want this one to be a fully usable primary OS for people. Doing that means relying on a lot more existing OSS software and putting things together in a way that doesnt feel hacked together.
