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.

Except that Haiku is in perpetual pre-alpha and has a quickly detoriating code base. Unless they manage to bring in the original NewOS developer to fix all the breakage (esp. SMP), the project is doomed as far as I can tell.


This is why some people would rather pressure the company that has BeOS's asset to completely open source it or revamp it. There is a fear that Haiku doesn't look like it'll be matured.
