These are versions of Python OS that are functional, but not stable. Not all features may work on all operating systems, and some might not work at all. Please help development by finding bugs and e-mailing them to with the version, Python version, Pygame version, application and operating system the error occurred on. Please also include a detailed description, and if possible, Python error.

    How is this an Operating System? An operating system is a collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs. This just appears to be something that mimics the display of what an OS would appear to be doing.
