Hello; LCARS stuff....
Posted by darkhawk [send private reply] at May 05, 2003, 08:32:17 PM hey all, I'm thinking about starting some LCARS projects; eventually an entire shell. Still not quite sure what language to write it in; I'm weighing advantages and disadvantages. If you want to talk to me about helping out (it'll all be freeware) email me.

You could try looking at the source of one, or try hacking at window maker.

Posted by Sonarman [send private reply] at May 11, 2003, 06:21:16 PM I've never tried anything like this :-), but PicoGUI (http://www.picogui.org), with it's theming, might be a good candidate if you don't want to write the whole thing from scratch. It has a pretty good amount of graphics drivers (both hardware drivers, and software drivers, like SDL). Another thing you might want to take a look at is Squeak, which is just so cool. There's a good description of it at http://www.squeak.org , I won't make an attempt to describe it here (because I suck), but briefly, it's an implementation of the Smalltalk-80 language/environment.
