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.

Darwin would be a terrible choice. It's driver base is limited and writing drivers for it is easy but it's non-standard compared to other BSDs.

QNX will cost you money and it's driver range is good, but nowhere near as good as Linux.

I'd like NetBSD's kernel. Many drivers (many, many) and BSD licensed.
