And, is not the very principle of Open Source?

The fact that the host system is proprietary does not detach from the fact that the Open Source technologies used in userland are great solutions.

Are open source projects on Windows looked upon with the same amount of scrutiny that SkyOS is given? Does Mozilla Firefox not exist in Windows? Is there no GCC in Windows?

Sorry, but I fail to see your point aside from trying to stir up trouble.
