SkyOS Not too long ago, Robert Szeleney put the development of SkyOS on a temporary hold. The challenges in keeping up with the ever-changing world of hardware support were simply too big to continue SkyOS then-current development model. As a result, Szeleney recently came up with the idea of using a Linux or NetBSD kernel as the base for SkyOS. Well, we've got a progress report on that one, and in true Szeleney fashion, a lot of work has already been done.

What's the point in using the Linux kernel?
I always thought that diversity in the OS field lies in kernels.

What makes Haiku, or syllable, or SkyOS so special was the fact they are completely different worlds based on their own kernels.
At least this is what thrill me.

Now SkyOS, using linux kernel, is less interesting (to me)... It's strange that nobody noticed this "issue".
