What I don't like about SkyOS is that iit's so similar to Windows. Why the hell someone should use a windows a like system instead of Windows.

Care to elaborate on this? What parts do you find too similar to Windows? Have you actually used SkyOS?

You are right about SkyOS being too similar to Windows, but the SkyOS team said they are doing that because else they will scare off Windows users.
