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.

Member since:

but there's a reason why every OS provides APIs in C

Not every. Just to mention the better known ones: MFC for Windows is C++, so is the whole BeOS (plus Haiku, Zeta) API.

Surely, there are darker and lighter sides of a decision like this. This one lets the coders do more powerful coding, while enshorting the list of compatible platforms. It may be worth.
