We haven't had that spirit here since 1969.

Oh my god how have I never been aware of TempleOS before right now Did that dude really post to YOSPOS for a bit before getting trolled into oblivion?

So the story goes. I've been wanting to read those YOSPOS threads for years now (I'm sure they're magnificent), so if anyone has a link, I'd be eternally grateful.

If you've got archives, they're not hard to find.

TempleOS actually has some really clever features that make you question the implementation of things in Linux or Windows. https://tinyurl.com/y76p9fb2 at about 1:45 into the video as an example of what I'm talking about. He has images and videos built directly into the source code. The question really comes up, why can't we have images built directly into Terminals? Sometimes it takes a mentally disturbed person to break convention to allow others to notice can be improved. Throwing a theoretical example such as "ls -EP" to show thumbnails of all images in a directory inside the terminal. Unix/Linux was devised in the 70s to mainly handle math and text documents. 40 years later it's still functionally the same yet the type of files it is encountering has progressed vastly.

There are a bunch of linux terminals that directly support displaying images, like kitty and terminology. I don't know if there is a replacement for ls that takes advantage of this to show thumbnails, but it would be pretty easy to make one of there isn't.

Ranger+w3m has term support for displaying images as well.

There's been pictures of Tux in the console boot process in Linux for as long as I can remember, and fbdev has been around for like 20 years?

The issue has never been whether it could be done, it's more that people realized they don't really give a poo poo and the feature dies on the vine.

When you put it that way... I can't believe there hasn't been at least one person who'd stop at nothing until the output of "ls -l" included a high-res still with correct subs from every anime in their collection.

Last year there was a Suse employee who was working on a kernel module to make the boot process be all graphical, no more text lines (even if modules would print them), and was using fbdev. After people berated him for not using DRM/KMS he kinda gave up. No idea how far along was he, but still, it's a bit sad.

Images in terminal was one of those “neat but why” things until I saw Rails added inline screenshots of failures while running browser tests

IPython has been around for 17 years and ELOG has been around for at least 10.
