GPL code is not used in the kernel or libraries. GPL'ed apps are used and the sources are available (Bash, GCC, etc).

SkyOS also uses no BSD code. It does use a heavily modified OpenBFS which has an MIT license.

The appearence was the result of a contest here on OSNews a few years back. Yes, it hasn't aged well, and it will be modified before final release.

Robert prefers to keep SkyOS closed source. His choice.

If you don't like paying to beta test SkyOS, just don't use it. Don't complain.
