A Hobby Operating System for Everypony!
PonyOS is a new Unix-like operating system.
No! PonyOS uses its own kernel, built from scratch.
The raw disk image can be used with QEMU. Other emulators may work but are not supported.
Extract the disk image from the tarball and then execute QEMU as follows:
qemu-system-i386 -m 1024 -hda ponyos-disk.img -vga std
(If you do not have sufficient RAM on your host, you may use
-m 512 instead.)
The default user is
local and the default password for that user is also
There is also a
root user with password
Download and extract the ZIP archive and open PonyOS.vmx. If VMWare prompts you as to whether you moved or copied files, "I copied it" will suffice as an answer. See the preceding section for available user accounts once the VM has booted.
To build PonyOS from scratch, please use an Ubuntu or Debian-derived host.
Download and extract the code archive, or clone from our git repository and then run
./build.sh. Note that we do not support building PonyOS from scratch and this process may not work. Complete builds may take anywhere from thirty minutes to many hours, depending on your hardware.
PonyOS is developed through Github. You can find our repository at klange/ponyos.
Unlikely, unless your motherboard supports IDE disk emulation for USB devices.
Booting just fine on my Dell Mini 9.
PonyOS uses a fully custom kernel, which is why it doesn't support things like networking or USB drives.
Download the PDF viewer, mount your PonyOS disk image, decompress the PDF viewer, and place it in
bin/pdfviewer. Now your PonyOS can read PDFs! Note that you also need to get some PDFs to read. Launch the PDF viewer from the terminal with
pdfviewer /path/to/some/document.pdf, then use
d to flip through pages and
q to quit.

I just can't not believe these guys are sick fucks. Either way, getting to run vim in your shitty furry pedo OS is an accomplishment I must recognize. Fuck this shit.Another Anon, from /prog/
