Yea, right. Someone needs to fire their facts checker.
working on it? sure..
making progress? nope
so do apples.
as well as little daemons
An apple a day keeps the doctor away y0.
On that note, has anyone here seen SkyOS? Written from scratch, and a weird hybrid looking thing of Mac and Linux. Looks interesting.
yeah I ued one of there live-cd's pretty cool.
I was thinking about dropping the $30 for a beta tester liscense. I don' think you have to be a developer, and you get all the betas, and then a final release version when it comes out. Looks solid as far as packaging a out of the box features, hell Fedora doesn't even ship with MP3/WMV support due to liscensing, though it takes about five minutes to add
What platforms is it available for?
I'm stuck on OS 10.3.9 right now, because some of my audio programs don't have support for tiger yet. I wonder what sort of cross platform compatibility osSky has?
Problem is...wtf are you going to do with an OS not based on Unix/Windows? There won't be any programs for it.
If you want to run ANYTHING you'll have to compile the source code yourself...sounds like a pain the the ass to me. I'll stick to Linux.
Their software system is a lot like CNR for Linspire, with programs also availible on disc. They are working out ports of GNU programs, and a program or framewrk that would allow installation of some Windows apps. Right now it has all the basics, using mostly Linux based programs, like GIMP, Openoffice, GAIM, Firefox/Mozilla etc...
