I just hope the Gnome Partition Editor will remain as user-friendly as it is.

Was Blackberry OS meant to be a joke? :P

I'd like to have one of those operative systems we saw in the sci-fi movies. :)

Where do they get that? I understand those computers probably don't do much more than the funny effects we see but I have to recognize that they're cooler than mine XP, Vistas and soever.
A matter of attitude.

Which ones do you mean? I have seen three kinds of OS's in films:

- Nerdy gray or green on black text-based DOS or Unix-like things (most prevalent, last seen in Matrix)
- Nutty transparent touchscreens (I remember them from music videos)
- Real-life OS's

I was thinking about those kind of transparent, 3d with lines connecting  pieces of information.
There are also those that just have colors flowing but I suppose that only bad aliens can operate them... :)

You can find an emulation of the Jurassic Park OS online. I think it was actually a real Unix GUI.

You forgot the major one.
There's a window half the screen with the words "Do you want to hack this?" and a thick button "Yes". Let alone Johnny Stark's one.;)

Wasn't that just SGI's 4Dwm without much doctoring?

Unfortunately, the web emulation hasn't bothered to implement much, besides what's relevant to the movie plot.

But it looks like you're quite right:

There used to be a 4Dwm clone called 5Dwm and IIRC there's at least one gtk2 theme that emulates SGI's Motif look.

It's even a Silicon Graphics monitor ( which is actually a Sony with an SGI-gray case :left: )

I have an O2, an Indy and an Indigo2 R10000 here, I think I know what an IRIX desktop looks like :right:

In some films I remember that when the hacker was typing and was faced with password request, then "override" took care of it. In real life it somehow hasn't worked for me.

Most intergalactic spaceships that invade Earth are conveniently equipped with a RS232C socket for the hero to use when he hacks into the on-board computer with his laptop.

We could introduce USB to them.

Looks like the new OS infobit cannot distinguish between Linux and Android. Is it possible to make it work?

It should be. For instance, my Opera for Android user agent is

Code: [Select]

Opera/9.80 (Android 4.4.2; Linux; Opera Mobi/ADR-1309251115) Presto/2.11.355 Version/12.10


The most important aspect of the mod I installed is that it has started recording user agents since yesterday. But I don't want to spend my time fixing up some detection system, so I'll have to figure out what to do about that.

@Frenzie, simplified version of detection algorithm I've done for punBB (should be fairly easy to port to any script):
Code: [Select]
function user_agent_detect($string, $rules)
{
foreach ($rules as $key => $value)
{
$version = 0;

if (isset($value['rules']))
{
if (strstr($key, '.'))
{
$version = explode('.', $key);
$key = $version[0];
}

for ($i = 0, $c = count($value['rules']); $i < $c; ++$i)
{
if (($version && preg_match('#'.$value['rules'][$i].'#i', $string)) || preg_match('#'.$value['rules'][$i].'#i', $string, $version))
{
return array($key.(isset($version[1]) ? ' '.$version[1] : ''), (isset($value['icon']) ? $value['icon'] : $key));
}
}
}
else if (stristr($string, $key))
{
return array($key, (isset($value['icon']) ? $value['icon'] : $key));
}
}

return NULL;
}

if (!empty($cur_post['user_agent']))
{
$browser = user_agent_detect($cur_post['user_agent'], parse_ini_file($ext_info['path'].'/rules/browsers.ini', TRUE));
$operating_system = user_agent_detect($cur_post['user_agent'], parse_ini_file($ext_info['path'].'/rules/operating-systems.ini', TRUE));

if ($browser || $operating_system)
{
$browser_img = ($browser ? '<img src="'.$base_url.'/extensions/user_agent/icons/browsers/'.strtolower($browser[1]).'.png'.'" alt="" title="'.htmlspecialchars($browser[0]).'" />' : '');
$operating_system_img = ($operating_system ? '<img src="'.$base_url.'/extensions/user_agent/icons/operatingsystems/'.strtolower($operating_system[1]).'.png'.'" alt="" title="'.htmlspecialchars($operating_system[0]).'" />' : '');

$forum_page['post_actions']['user_agent'] = '<span class="edit-post user-agent-post" title="'.htmlspecialchars($cur_post['user_agent']).'" onclick="alert(\''.htmlspecialchars($cur_post['user_agent']).'\n'.($browser ? '\n'.htmlspecialchars($browser[0]) : '').($operating_system ? htmlspecialchars('\n'.$operating_system[0]) : '').'\')">'.$browser_img.$operating_system_img.'</span>';
}
}

It requires these definitions:
https://github.com/Emdek/eStats/blob/master/src/share/data/browsers.ini
https://github.com/Emdek/eStats/blob/master/src/share/data/operating-systems.ini
And uses these icons:
https://github.com/Emdek/eStats/tree/master/src/share/icons

Personally I would suggest to store results in additional columns (or single one, as serialized array), no need to run it each time.
It could be also modified to check if they are not empty, so when rules are updated then these columns could be emptied and script would refill them when needed.

Edit: nothing, huh?
This is netsurf on RISC OS 5.19 on a Raspberry Pi.
