Their site is down at the moment so I can't check if this new build finally has the one and only feature I've been waiting for: is swap finally enabled?
Because until that's done, it cannot run (officially) on machines with less than 512mb of RAM and this is one thing that truly frustrates me about SkyOS. While I have a couple of old machines 'to play with' I could use for SkyOS, none of them have enough memory...
(Yes, I paid for access to beta and I've been waiting for more than a year now for a build I could actually use)
