SkyOS SkyOS has gotten a new virtual filesystem, dubbed BranchFS. This makes it possible to branch filesystems, convert read-only media into read-write media, and add SkyFS attributes to non-SkyFS volumes. "BranchFS makes it possible to make a reversible filesystem. By using your system partition you can revert to a previous state (with just one reboot) and and when using a CD BranchFS makes it possible to make changes to the content. BranchFS is still in heavy development but branching a LiveCD works quite well already. The first SkyOS LiveCD will be based on BranchFS."

I'm confused... There are so many people working on the Linux kernel, and many more working on X, KDE, GNOME, etc. - and yet, Robert and his team of like 5 people seem to be adding way more exciting features of SkyOS.

SkyOS now has so many device drivers, cool UI, applications that work consistently. How is this possible?
