Yes, Press Alt+1, Alt+2, etc to change current keyboard layout. I don't remember exact number for German.

Yes, search the board for the toolchain by Serge, includes gcc cross-compiler (e.g. here).

No WiFi support at the moment.

Thanks for the quick reply. :)

It's pretty hard for a non russian speaker to get into KOS programming when liturally everything is in russian language. :/
I think the developer language is suppose to be english, so developers around the world can contribute.
In order to push the development of KOS, we should provide a nice documentation about KOS in english.

I think KOS has the potential to become a nice community project but the language barrier is stopping it.

I totally agree. As a fellow developer it really is a problem for me.

Generall tip for non Rusian-language people. Ask, be stubborn and ASK.

Wiki has english version - docpak in standard distro is in English, assembler menemonics are english dependent :wink: . For more advices ask. Be stubborn and patient - ask.

There are many English-speaking developers here; everyone is ready to help.
Most of Kernel docs have English versions as well.

I guess the main newcomer's problem is the Assembly core, this requires a special way of coding-and-thinking in FASM
