SkyOS After months of work, there is now a new complete C++ API for SkyOS, which replaces the old C API. The C++ API consists of more than 150 classes, including support for thread and process information, full GUI support, and gesture support, to name a few. Additionally, news about the LiveCD and some of the technology behind it has been updated, including a few screenshots of the LiveCD in action.

Colour me unconvinced

I don't yet know the details of this, but there's a reason why every OS provides APIs in C: just about every language out there can call functions written in C. Unless you make use of a binary language-agnostic standard like COM, the same doesn't generally apply to C++, Objective C, or indeed any of the other object-oriented languages out there.

As a developer, only having a C++ API would make me quite cautious.
