It's actually more like alpha, really.

Usually the definition of "Beta" refers to a product that is feature complete, but buggy, or has known issues.

Since new features are being added to SkyOS at every release, it's certainly not Beta in the normal sense. This is why it's not out of "beta" yet.

Besides, Wine was in alpha for like 12 years before they released the first beta... go figure.
