Screens Environment has been going since 2002 and still no releases have made the light of day. There is a single reason why Screens has taken so long and why I have no idea when it will be released. Its not because I lack time or interest. Its because of the object storage.
If you look at the object oriented OS projects, none of them have made mainstream because they are not practical enough, too complex, too slow and still stuck in a concept. There are many companies trying to bring object oriented concepts to file systems just like me and just like me are still stuck.
If I was not making the object storage, I would of finished Screens long ago but then again the object storage is such a radical change that Screens would not be the same without it. In fact, the object storage would be the main difference between Screens and other middleware platforms.
I need luck, time and persistence to find a combination that works.
