A quick look at the history of TempleOS — including the current forked version, known as “ZealOS”.
It’s a weird, wild ride.
An alternate universe of what a smartphone OS could be like.
Not iOS. Not Android. Not even your various flavors of Linux phone. This is something totally different. A Smalltalk-based phone with roots in the Xerox Alto of the 1970s.
And it works.
Note: I misspelled “SqueakPhone” in the first slide. Because spelling is hard.
Curious how to properly say "GNOME"? Linux? GNU? Ubuntu? Mozilla? Let's walk through exactly how to pronounce some of the Open Source & Linux world's most challenging words... the Lunduke Way (tm).

Ode to Msft Office 365.
There was a time when, like so many, I thought office was over priced. I made my kids use open office as it was free. They HATED it.
Anywho….flash forward and office is actually a good value, IMHO.
It’s recently brought me joy by adding the ability to have multiple accounts in teams and OneNote, A source of annoyance was working on a client engagement and THEY use Office365 so I couldn’t be simultaneously on my employer teams and the client teams. It’s nice that there is an excellent web interface. But I prefer the apps.
Now, in the morning at 6:30am, I can attend a teams call from my phone - in my bed…instead of having to use the client laptop.
Another “new” (to me) niceness is that Visio is included in Office365. I never use Visio enough to warrant purchasing it. I do prefer LucidChart, but when Visio is free and available, it’s nice.
I like slack and Teams both. However, the integration of teams into office is a very nice plus.
I discovered a ...
We've got some fun events happening over the next few weeks, here at The Lunduke Journal!
Saturday, December 3rd, 2022 @ 12pm Eastern - Founding Member Hangout. An email will be sent out before we get started with the link for the video chat. (This is only for Founding Member level subscribers.)
December 7th through December 14th, 2022 - PDA Week! We will be immersing ourselves in all things Personal Digital Assistant. Palm, Newton, Psion, WinCE, DOS, Maemo, Zaurus, the works.
January 4th through January 11th, 2023 - 8 Bit Week! Apple II, Atari 8-bit, Commodore 64... if it's a computer, and it's 8 Bit, this will be its week to shine!
In addition, we'll also be putting on the "macOS Sucks" live show during December! This had to be postponed due to a rather nasty round of Strep Throat. Now that I'm back to full speed, we'll be finding the perfect date for this on the calendar. It's a little tricky during December, what with all the holidays and all, but we'll find a good spot for it! Announcement on that soon!
To take full advantage of the PDA and 8 Bit themed weeks, you'll want to make sure you have an account over on Lunduke.Locals.com. That's, essentially, the social media / forum for The Lunduke Journal community.
For more details on the different subscription levels -- and all their perks -- see the "How to Subscribe to The Lunduke Journal" page on Substack.
Once again, a huge thank you to all of you amazing subscribers to The Lunduke Journal. You make all of this possible — without a single drop of money from Big Tech. Pretty cool.
Got a two quick Lunduke Journal notes for everyone:
Lunduke has come down with a case of Strep Throat and his voice is shot. Since he can’t really speak, the Friday and Saturday shows this week have been moved to next week (November 18th and 19th). That includes “macOS Sucks”. Additional scheduling details (including URLs for live-streaming) will be sent out to all Lunduke Journal subscribers in the coming days.
Starting at midnight tonight (Friday), The Lunduke Journal will not be offering any new Lifetime Subscriptions. Existing Lifetime Subscriptions (including any that people pick up before midnight tonight) will, obviously, be honored. For life (hence the name). For more details, see this post on Lunduke.Locals.com from earlier in the week.
Sorry for the change, everyone. My throat is just not up for an hour long show today... and I'm highly doubtful my voice will sound even remotely normal by tomorrow at this time. So a reschedule had to happen.
That is all.
The article formatting functionality of Locals works within Falkon on Haiku!
Including image uploading! Sweet!
In order to post or comment, you'll need to become a paying member. This supports the work I do -- and also keeps out the riff raff. ;)
The rules around here are super simple:
1) Be Excellent to Each Other.
2) No cursin' or posting material you couldn't show on prime-time TV in the 1980's.
That's it, really! Be cool and keep it clean so folks can enjoy this at work and around their kids.
Oh, and nerdiness is encouraged. The nerdier the better.
