I did understand, the problem is that developers don't like to "bloat" their apps, use others, or mix together, simple as that.
I don't follow DC development, i do have a pimped DC with a Karaoke base adapter. I hate SEGA for what they did with the console.
Most of us are just happy with having fmcb 1.7 and having all your apps right there in the browser so you can choose them, or being able to just boot your backup straight off.
What more do you need really.
It still sounds like you guys are taking the idea the wrong way. People who are more familiar with homebrews and modifications for other systems might better understand the concept.
Not trying to undermind your opinions, just that PS2 seems to be the only system that does not have a Team developers like this, so I disagree with the statement that developers dont like to work together on projects.
I do understand your concept, I don't understand the need for it I guess.
Becuase an OS style would be more user-friendly and have more over all appeal! Not needed just a good idea.
Something the programmers here have probably thought over before, and have there reasons for doing it or not
I'm waiting on the dlanor long version replay on why it's not a good idea to make an 'all-in-one' OS on the PS2.
LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make room for the "essay".....

yeah, psp almost killed the ps2 homebrew interest.
PS2 is a dying console, his life cycle will end and so development because as the developers say, is hard to develop for PS2, in other hand development for Xbox goes strong because they say is very easy to develop, since is just a PC like hardware.
still it's pretty neat to write something for it. i like embedded platforms, and ps2 simply seems like one.

I think you will see a change in that in the future, now that running homebrew on the ps2 is more accesible then it has in the past. Ease of access plays a big role in homebrew developement, and the additions of FMCB and the PS2 emulator offer that.
