I think there is a confusion with the real name of Prodatron in that interview, because in the emails he signs Jörn Mika.

Do you know how to do clicks with the keyboard?

On older versions INS activates the keyboard, but  on 3.0 it behaves different. Now you must press ALT while moving the internal joystick to slide the mouse pointer, but I don't know how to click on the icons.

I want to show to other Enterprise owners how good SymbOS or EGI works on their machines. Almost all of them own EXDOS controllers and 512KB Ram expansions, but only one of them has an EnterMice.  

I know, we have a fantastic emulator, but it is easier for me to give my friends a disk or an image than try to teach them how to install and configure the emulator to try the program. A lot of them ignore that they don't need more equipment to make SymbOS work.

This is a bug. We have already reported to Prodatron.
He will fix it :)

Ok, thanks Tutus. I have not realised the error until now. And the SimbOS pdf manual didn't aid me.

Also, the keyboard doesn't allow diagonal movements of the pointer.

I have found a download link to a beta version of Unify IDE here, formerly named Symstudio and soon to be released as Quigs IDE.

It is a development suit for SymbOS, being developed since a lot of years by Trebmint(Rob Buckley). As Edoz put the link on ww.msx.org last year(September 2017) and it still works, probably he doesn't care if we download a few copies of it...

It includes the code of a lot of Edoz's own apps, like Columns, Battleship or Tetris. There isn't documentation, but Trebmit released three youtube videos on 2014 explaining its use.

Both Trebmint and Edoz are EnterpriseForever users, so I don't think they will mean if we are interested on developing something simple for  Prodatron's wonderful operative system.

I will be happy if SymCommander will handle the extended partitions of the SD card. :)
And, of course, there will be chat as well. :) (This also requires a Bruce NET card)

Another way to develop for SymbOS 3.0, more skilled, is a SDK for a free C compiler known as SDCC. Although it is intended for Symbos 2.0, the descriptions can be completed with the up-to-date Developer documentation and the System library on the download section of the operative system's web page.

I hope we can listen to these songs on the Enterprise soon. They sound cool, in mp3 format!

How about a SymbOS compatible Enterprise MIDI (.epm) player, if someone is interested in writing one? Or maybe even a port of SIDBASIC, but that would be harder.

Good idea, but it would be better to expand Symamp to reproduce it. Then every SymbOS user(CPC, MSX and Enterprise) will benefit. And about a SID player, you already have made half the work with your Spectrum SID to AY libraries.

Geco has the up-to-date Symamp source.

I realise now, AY chips only have three channels.
