How is this OS developed?

By one monster-coder who probably sold someone's soul in exchange for the gift of programming non-stop. I don't know how he supports himself, but the paid beta's cover a bit. There's also some extra coders/site-maintainers helping out. I presume they don't get paid a lot, based on SkyOS' income.
