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."

You're right, SkyOS doesn't tread new ground. A responsive system under heavy loads, a nice clean API, advanced feature integration (like using a browser or videoplayer as a widget) and user-friendlyness aren't new.

If only anything on Linux came even close though..
