This is a fun idea and it was executed pretty well. I do think it would have been better with the new drawing characters, but it still looked really nice. It crashed when I put a turtle next to the computer, but I couldn't find other issues.
There's a lot of code behind your program! Most of it appears to be UI code, which could be a lot simpler and smaller if you wrote/used a UI library. It would also be nice if you used the new symbols for your user interface, but overall the UI was good. There were a few usability issues, such as setting the output of a file when attempting to copy/move files from a disk can be confusing. I also felt like more features could be added, such as an option to mirror the screen to the monitor, and a basic send/receive files for modems, but there were plenty other features to support a wide range of peripherals, and that was pretty cool. Another suggestion is to have a better input system that doesn't go outside of its own input box. Your code formatting and style is great, could be more modular, but considering the time restraints and the fact that this is a Hackathon/Jam, your code is solid. You made a great entry, and I look forward to what you'll make in the future.
This was really neat. I like how simple and straight forward it was to use and like the use of icons. It may have been nice to see the new graphics characters to assist in your design and for computer peripherals to indicate their colour (i.e. advanced would be yellow). The functionality to print a file was also missing. Other than that this was pretty perfect.
While Peripheral Manager works, it doesn't pick up peripherals on the wired network. But, it works great with other objects, and the interface was easy-to-use, and easy to understand. I was disappointed to see that it didn't work with most peripheral mods ;(
Pretty useful utility, and it seems to work pretty well for all the standard CC peripherals, except turtles, which make it crash. I like the notification center, but the UI overall could use a bit of tweaking.
