How did TidOS fail exactly?
A full release was made and it served me perfectly fine until I could afford to buy a hard drive.

In all honesty, TidOS was an OS for Jordan, by Jordan - not what the tagline would have you believe.

How can you trust such a thing when even Tor was compromised.

Can't rely on third party security softwares, they cater to too many people and it opens up different options for features to make sure different people can use the thing. The more features, the more chances for security holes.

Why? They're not using your time to develop gtorrent? They're spending their own time in a cause they feel is worth their time.

TBH, the attitude of the contributors doomed the project from the start.

An overenthusiastic lead and several (three I think) laidback devs.

Their website is still up, although their github is down, and so is their IRC.

No, it's dead. The creator said that a github would be available to the public in the near future, but it won't happen. The project leader is a kid fresh out of highschool with no development or linux experience. The only thing he knows how to do is make wallpapers.

Alright, here we fucking go.

To begin, I'm not the guy who started this shit. He left to do his own thing.

CloverOS is pretty stagnant, but still something I want to do. Most of the team, including myself, drifted away from the project. There were and still are plans to get a i386/amd64 /g/ repository up. If there's anything this project will produce, it's that. TheGreatWaldo was working on the OS (based on Debian Jessie), but left when the IRC went silent.

I'll probably reorganize the project, but until then I'm taking down the site. It'd be better to save the remaining credits and money for when shit is getting done than to just have a barely visited page up.

If you want to discuss CloverOS or perhaps come back to the team, we have a new IRC.
