Project URL: https://longhorn-sim.glitch.me
this is a modified version of auroraOS which has some changes to the looks:
- startup gif replaced with longhorn boot screen
- wallpaper like original
- theme hardcoded to look like windows 95 (theme included)
- app names changed to look like windows (write --> word 2007)
still to go:
- app icons change
- some new apps
- ability to login/logout (might wait a bit for this)
longhorn is an abandoned OS by microsoft, it came after XP. If i get sued i’ll abandon the project- but it’s been lost for about 13 years.
original project: auroraOS - An OS in your browser by @soup
Could of made a warning that there’s a startup sound. It’s 11.49pm and I had my speaker on max
lol those times tough
oh and @17lwinn, It’s pretty much the same thing as auroraOS, but LOL. (no offense. And also, that windows theme looks sharp!)
@anon43649539 couple of times the sound failed to play so i didn’t know it worked, sorry!
@code-alt yeah, it is pretty much the same. For now…
There’s a specialized autoplay policy that determins whether a sound gets to play or not. It’s even stricter on mobile, making it so the user must trigger a gesture like tapping something to play a sound. I think it’s to save bandwith for phone plans.
that does make sense, i might replace the sound for something else
something LIKE longhorn
Maybe put a long train horn sound as a joke
just started making shutdown app
The files app is vulnerable to XSS.
this is an older project of auroraos that doesn’t have file permissons yet so it’s insecure
