I was wondering: what is the GOAL of the KolibriOS project?

If the goal is to show that with assembly you can build a graphical, superfast and small relatively complete desktop operating system, then it has already succeeded.

If the goal is to build a desktop operating system to compete with Windows or Linux than it has a long way to go.

Is there a roadmap for KolibriOS?

Why does NetSurf have a much higher priority than Firefox? Netsurf is very limiited in that it doesn't support JavaScript and almost all websites require this today for proper functioning.

If I were you I'd give top priority to porting Firefox or some other mainline browser.

So I assume you want to make a desktop operating system that can compete with Windows, Mac OS X or Linux?

I admire your skill and bravery, but I believe it's an exercise in futility, much like Wine (the Windows re-implementation on Linux). You could spend years trying to get to the point where the feature set is a MVP (mimimal viable product) compared to Windows.

Why not try to occupy a niche? Like a minimal desktop client for RDP (remote desktop protocol) or an ultra-small server operating system focused on webservers or cloud. Or an IoT operating system. Or a router operating system.

But can you at least port a version of Netsurf which has JavaScript support?

Now it is difficult to call it a full-fledged operating system, because to run it on a PC, you need either a virtual machine, or need old computer with floppy drive or need "dancing with a tambourine".

  1. Create GPT layout on your flash device.
  2. Create EFI System Partition (ESP) on it.
  3. Format ESP as FAT32.
  4. Make /EFI/BOOT directory on ESP.
  5. Edit kolibri.ini file according to your needs.
  6. Copy kolibri.efi as /EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI.
  7. Copy kolibri.{krn,img.ini} files to /EFI/BOOT/.
  8. Optionally, copy DEVICES.DAT file to /EFI/BOOT/.

Files kolibri.* and DEVICES.DAT are mentioned in the above posts.
