>The server was great, I really enjoyed my time there! I talked about Linux and met some cute femboys who were into programming, 10/10 would recommend!
I don’t fake screenshots of grooming lol. Stay mad that someone thought it was funny enough to screencap

Despite all the anti-features of TempleOS, it has some great ideas that modern systems, especially Linux, should learn from. I think the shell is the greatest strength of the OS, since it uses a general purpose language, and can manipulate the OS programmatically. And because the terminal program supports mouse events, rich media (the most ridiculous being 3D models), and potentially even more, it's practically an IDE. The shell is such an integral part of the experience, that you can basically develop, debug and use the OS without ever leaving the terminal window! Of course this isn't really a new idea, as Project Oberon had a very similar approach, only with a Pascal style language. It was developed in 1987 by the way. There was also Smalltalk (1972), which made you ultra productive, and was a joy to work with overall. Also note how it's one of the most minimal languages ever. Some languages like Erlang and Elixir allow hot-swapping code at runtime, which could be used in such an OS, but they are not very user friendly. Jonathan Blow's Jay language looks like it's very flexible with it's metaprogramming, though he wants to use it primarily for game development. Finally, Emacs is executing the OS idea using Lisp, while masquerading as a text editor, which is totally not misleading. See how you can have all this power without needless complexity? Terry's OS and Project Oberon fit on a floppy, the Jay language compiles 3D video games in less than a second, Emacs does everything with only parentheses, while some text editors literally download chromium to work, and then struggle to open files larger than 10MB, not to mention RAM usage. Maybe web assembly will change something in terms of performance, but the spirit is definitely not there... Guess this is why some like distros like Arch ;)

But Linux (community) is not innocent here either, with allowing trash like systemd to infect every distro. Void really shines here, because it's fast, minimal and in general makes the right choices. However, Linux (distros) are just not interactive enough. They manipulate text and files really well, but when talking about richer media, they send you somewhere else. Imagine if your terminal could display images as effortlessly as text, play some video, maybe render an interactive preview of a document you're writing. You might say that this violates the UNIX philosophy, but I think you could extend the idea of pipes to account for rich media, or just yield values from functions Python-style, making everything as modular as ever. Suddenly the terminal IS the OS, only more powerful and customizable than anything mouse based. When I say that Linux should learn from TempleOS, I mean it in the most unharmful way possible, because Linux is the only good operating system (kernel) for a (power-)user, and it has infinitely more potential than the lost causes I won't mention. I know, however, that Linux is a project with history, and that not everyone can reinvent the wheel quite like Terry, but let's not forget that there is a lot of room for imprevement in software, and accepting mediocre solutions will only slow us down. Vim and Emacs users definitely know, that there are good ideas in older, simpler, but evergreen pieces of software. Terry knew that really well, so he created the OS of, maybe literally, his dreams. Thanks for reading this far into my rant, please read the rest, it's not much :) Terry's TempleOS is inspiring in how much it does with limited resources, how it doesn't forget things done well in the past, and how power-user-friendly software can really be. Rest in peace Terry, I have no doubt that anyone who looks at TempleOS beyond the surface level will see that it's damn good software, written by a damn good engineer.
