An early multitasking API system and GUI shell for DOS

What is it?

Exelyx was my first foray into OS and user interface design, starting in mid-1990.


Why would you want to do that?

I grew up with a Mac. Later on, as I eventually migrated away from the overpriced Apple family, my desire was to bring a Mac-like experience to DOS. Call it romanticism, call it nostalgia, but whatever the reason, I was - and still am - convinced that I can do a better job of this than the folks in Redmond.


What are the specs?



What's the progress?

The project was cancelled in 2016 and its underlying technologies are being repurposed for use in the Night Kernel.
