SkyOS After nearly three months of work, the SkyOS team has released a new build of their operating system. Changes include, but are not limited to: desktop compositing working with every graphics card, USB 2.0 stack (with keyboard, mouse, mass storage, printer, card reader, hub, USB-CDROM, and other drivers), SATA drives support, printing stack (about a 1000 USB and network printers supported), and CD/DVD recording support.

"-The API is inspired by BeOS (just like the filesystem) but it has it's own API. They've hinted they could implement compatibility layers with other OSes (BeOS' API wouldn't be that far off), but realistically speaking I wouldn't wait for it."

Actually the api looks much more windows-inspired. At least, looking here http://www.skyos.org/documents/api/html/group__wgstyle.html
I can't find anything even remotely resembling the beos api. Especially because it looks C based and not C++ based. See all those HANDLE parameters ?
