I'm very impresionate... o.O

And... congratulations, i never guess that C# should be able to build an
operating system.

When i get a some of free time, i will try it.

Hopefully that Sharp OS to become a great project.

Again, congratulations. And follow the suggestion of Gavin Landon: Be
careful, because M$ will steal that idea. Take the precautions that

Best regards.
