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.

Why?


I suggest you take a look at OpenSolaris. So much promise when it was originally open sourced only to find there has been bugger all outside contributions from the great unwashed programming masses. Open sourcing something isn't the panacea to solve all of lifes problems.
