I think all programmers should know machine code...

As for the code, who here is going to be interested in 16-bit ASM for a dead OS (that I can't even find proof of its existence)? Not us. Not employers. Nobody.


I wouldn't say it just like that. There is something to say for having the ability to work in some weird platforms. Of course since none of the information we have been given so far is in any way verifiable and neither Google nor Wikipedia seem to work with what we have the more likely explanation is "made up code for made up operating system".

All I needed was Assembly and Windows OS for some slightly "higher" graphics control.


Well, you better believe it. The assembler I use is an old one called FASM-T4. It's only available on XENIO-12 BEST OS. It's a 16bit operating system from 2004(not professionally made).


So what did you use Windows for? Or is Windows "XENIO-12 BEST OS"?

get more efficient work done in my assembler and raw code, which I see performs better than 99% of all high-level codes. :D


Nothing like an efficient "nibbles" (snake) clone! The one Microsoft made in Q-Basic 20+ years ago was so laggy.


I still have a copy sitting on my XT. Maybe I should go back and refactor it a bit. You never know when you may need a copy of nibbles for DOS. At least people have heard of that OS.

Sure, if the OS/hardware actually existed and was still being used by lots of people or at least a handful of large companies, then I suppose it would be a useful skill. You could make a living off of it and I know people who do.

So what did you use Windows for? Or is Windows "XENIO-12 BEST OS"?


XENIO-12 is a snipe hunt.

Make sure you port it to machine code. And please, do *not* start a recursive quotation here.

The OS I use isn't made up. It's an independent team's OS called XENIO 12 BEST. It's a small OS that was only released in New Jersey(which is where I live).

Here's pictures of its logos and screenshots:

Well, thats says it all.

Funny though, how that image looks familiar. Very similar to OS/2, if the logo had been removed, then the image sized down, blurred, and had the color space lowered.

What says what all? O.o

Sorry though, yeah, it is kinda blurry because the resolution is very crappy and low and the screen capture program can't get a good picture of it when converted to .pictures

Don't worry. I think it's awesome that you feel that passionate for what you do. You just need to improve your forum skills a little bit and you'll be almost perfect. ;)

It is not helping your case to not supply any verifiable information. The pictures you posted just weaken your case since they scream "desperate photoshopper out of ideas except blur filter". You could have supplied a link to the team's website. Or their dial-in phonenumber. Or an address where one could reach them by snail-mail because they are too tinfoil-hatty to be online. Or the crop circle where you have to leave a glass of fresh milk on a full moon.

They do not have a website, and I don't know their phone number for contact info. Is that my fault? My mother bought the computer from a thrift shop almost 10 years ago. I have not a clue about its whereabouts much.

Address? No idea... It was one of those "come and go" things with a dead warranty after 30 days. At least it works though and I improved the system. :P

The assembler specifically made for it was made by the team that made the computer itself and it came on the system. I find it VERY useful, though the product had crappy warranty and its contact number it came with was lost after unpacking years ago.

I know for a FACT that they don't have a website though because, trust me, I looked. :D

Also, if you want more clear images I can get them.

No worries. That's actually the OS we use at work to make PlayStation 5 games. All the pros use it. You'll fit right in.

Brilliant image manipulation skills, my friend. You may not be able to get a job as a programmer, but don't quit your image hobby!

You live in Jersey? The XENIO 12 BEST is only released in Jersey. :(

I didn't manipulate anything... :( I actually SUCK at image editing. And I don't care about "corporate qualifications", I can do good on my own and that's all that matters. :D

You should of just told us you program for OS/2 WARP! That would have been somewhat more impressive than your Jersey Shore OS.

You have already posted so much verifiably wrong information in this thread (like that horrible PS3 brainfart) that in accordance with Occam's razor the story that you have absolutely no clue seems to be the far more likely explanation.
