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.

It's quite unfortunate but I think this quote sums it up:

"Let say, SkyOS is in a critical state at this moment, and sound the death knell on it yet would be quite easy, but trying to get it back on track is the real challenge currently"

And it seems his attention has already wandered over to iPhone development, which can be very interesting.

It does not seem like there is much effort into getting it back on track. So thank for the update, but there is no change in the status here.

If any SkyOS people want to try out development on a very unique OS, I invite you to start here:

It's a great way to spend time until something happens with SkyOS.
