Ehum... Somebody did take over it. IIRC, JT Williams did. And I have
been messing with it too.

But our main goal is to make it behave as WINDOZE 9x. We have already
that in place, but there seemingly are bugs.

My enthusiasm declined when I lost the primary partition contents. I
didn't loose anything important as it was my scrap PC, but that meant
a pause in the work, then something else more interesting came up and
I haven't got back to it (yet).
