are there currently any plans for adding a double buffer to mikeOS? I feel like the flashing when scrolling the screen really drags the OS down.

In what apps/context are you seeing the flashing? On what hardware?

I see the flashing when trying to scroll through a basic program. I'm running mikeOS on QEMU on ubuntu 21.10

Scrolling through in what app though? EDIT.BIN for instance? Did you try MikeOS 4.7 beta, which has fixes to EDIT.BIN to reduce the number of redraws?

It was in EDIT.BIN, yes.

And the second part - in MikeOS 4.7?
