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."

Member since:

you are right, NOTHING on linux comes close to it, this is why kde isnt responsive under load, it doesent have a good api either, and certainly not good integration with kparts (widgets) that can be embedded, its not userfriendly either, you must give all commands to it in simplified chinese, written as raw bits on a special keyboard only featuring a 0 and 1 button ;)

oh wait, i forgot, kde really does have all this, and oh wait, it also runs on linux.
