SkyOS The future of SkyOS, the closed-source alternative operating system, had been hanging by a thread for a long time now. Barely any releases, until they came to a grinding halt altogether and Robert Szeleney explained he was pondering the future of SkyOS, and where to take it from here. One of the main problems was a lack of driver support which really made development difficult. Well, this is a problem Szeleney might be able to fix.

Why would a 'proprietary commercial' (project goals) OS want to use an open source GPL licensed linux kernel? NetBSD would be a better bet so they do not become tied up with the GPL. FreeBSD even better.
