    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.

    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...
