SkyOS Over the past couple of months, I've been getting a number of emails asking me about SkyOS' status. Since I didn't know anything beyond what's on the SkyOS website, and because, well, I have no affiliation with SkyOS, I couldn't really reply to these emails. However, after yet another email sent to me late last week, I decided to simply... Email Robert Szeleney, the man behind the project.

SkyOS is known for being in a perpetual state of unfinishedness. Open sourcing it would make it even more so.

Apologies for being a troll, but I do not feel that open sourcing it is necessarily the solution. It’s his project and I’d rather hear it directly from him where he wants it to go.


What could he add to what he just said? He even mentions "potential new project owners"
I hope he doesn't make the same mistake as Tal Danzig of Libranet: he was hoping to make a fortune from Libranet code, and he killed the project in the process (not that a real comparison is possible, Libranet was a great OS from every point of view, still missed by its fans).
