Is his OS actually impressive? I'm assuming he doesn't have a job and has a lot of time to obsess about writing it
Were he not mental would he be somebody of note or just another programmer?

The fact that he made a functional OS is impressive by itself anon. He's chaotic evil.

>>52686570
He did a pretty amazing job with his OS, one-man-army, indeed. I don't mind his rantings, we all get angry with random things now and then.

Did you expect him to make an OS on par with GNU/Linux as a lone wolf? Even though it doesn't run on hardware, but in a VM, it's still really impressive.

His twitter feed is fucking hilarious

It doesn't say anywhere that he was schizo.

If anything he's referring to depression or something.

He has some really cool ideas such as inline graphics and the file system. His Holy C language is interesting too. The OS itself uses quite old and by today's standards basic technologies. There is no hardware acceleration etc as God didn't want that apparently. Pretty much the only reason the system is responsive is because of how powerful machines are these days. Remember his OS can only run in a VM due to the insecure ways he deals with memory and device access. All very 90s ways of doing things on old Pentium CPUs.

He is no doubt very very good at what he does though and I do not doubt he could be an amazing programmer of modern systems if God wanted him to be.

Dude must have no testosterone or an unbelievable amount of self control. He made me realize that if I wasn't so addicted to porn and jerking off, I could've accomplished so much in the past few years. I'm certainly not smart enough to write my own operating system, but I could've at least finished a few of the applications that I was working on.

TempleOS is neat. Crazy in its totally different approach to everything else, charmingly retrofuturistic and reminiscent of the 80s microcomputers in a good way, but definitely neat. It has a few really nice ideas in it; albeit ideas that probably wouldn't fit anywhere near as neatly in anything else.

Face it: you don't just sit down and write an entire operating system, including the language it's written in, including that language's compiler.

Unless of course you're Terry A. Davis. He's done it, the absolute madman.

Of course, that's exactly the thing. You've got to wonder about his quality of life; his family; his friends; what else he has. That's a huge pity, a real shame. You might think of it as a waste, but would it even be the same without that kind of passion behind it?

It is an almost unfathomable amount of work. It probably takes that level of mission-from-God unbending determination to be able to accomplish a task of that magnitude. A normal person would not; could not have done it. You pretty much have to be a little insane to even try.

So yeah. It's sad, but it's also kind of beautiful. Admiration for what he's accomplished; amusement for some of the shit he says that you really only get away with if you have a condition like that; sadness for whatever else is in his life.

Shine on, you crazy diamond.

Schizophrenia is a very interesting mental disorder.

There's definitely a pattern to it. People who suffer from serious schizophrenia all seem to write in the same, disorganized and badly formatted way.

Depending on the culture, the subjects the sufferers become obsessed with change. Asians tend to have more delusions about shamefur display.

For someone who can and does literally spend all of his time programming (and worshiping his creations), probably not that impressive. Pick up a systems architecture book and you've got the recipes to make an OS.

Pick up a book and you can write a compiler, given enough time
At my university every 2nd semester gets to write one, checking semantics, optimizing and translating that is, not the lexer.

If that's who I'm thinking of (Shawn T. Cook), he used to have a Facebook account where he would post shit that was even crazier than what our boy Terry posted. I remember he said something about driving a school bus into a vat of acid or something and he posted pictures of some crystals that started with meth (it wasn't methamphetamine) and rave about how the dentist scares him, shit was hilarious.
He deleted his account or made it private though.

Yo, janitor fag : The real Terry was banned of reddit 'cause of the same reason you're deleting these dude's posts. Should Terry himself post in the thread, you would censor him.
