· Info

AQUA is a kernel and DE made in NASM, C, AQUABasic and AQUALayout. It focuses mainly on ease of use, speed and stability. Note that some features described below may not appear in current versions, but might in the future.

· UX

The apps are categorized into 4 drop-down menus. They can be accessed in the widgets page as well. The applications are normally full-screen, though they can be used and managed in a windowed mode.

· Graphics

The main theme is a “frosted glass” effect with some texture to it. Pretty much all layers have this effect. Elements also have a depth parameter, which means that elements “closer” to a layer are blurred less. This can be seen in an application opened from the desktop, where the power button on the bottom left is less blurred than the wallpaper.

· Application development

There are two ways of creating applications; you can either use AQUALayout which is a really high level language that allows the creation of applications that follow the main theme of the entire OS, or you can use AQUABasic which is useful for creating games and non-UI applications. You can write in both these languages with the Note applet in the applet bar.
