Speed.

Of the OS and of its development.

Those are the two things most people are intrested in most in an alternative OS and SkyOS seems to have them both in spades...

I say seems because I simply have nothing to base anything on...but it would be nice to have something that 'just works' and 'works well' but is NOT Windows.

Price is only a small part of things. Not even the main part.
