I just fixed some small errors. I also added drive letters to the file manager. This also runs on a floppy by the way or in any directory.

Not bad. But I think the mouse routines need work, they seem to slow the whole GUI down. Otherwise it's pretty good for only 348KB of GUI ;-)

Thanks for the input. I will look into making the mouse better as you say.

I have added task switching buttons to the system bar to prevent processes from conflicting.

New updates: * some overflow and other silly errors fixed (will now boot nicely from a flash drive using autoexec.bat) * higher resolution

You should post updates to the site as new posts so we can see updates as they happen! I didn't even know you fixed stuff until I saw the comments side-bar, lol!

I agree with Atrocity, you should post a new post every time you update so that it's easier to find, and so that the old material is kept for archival purposes. Even a couple of sentences is perfectly good for a news post, that way we can all keep up on your progress.
