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.

Open sourcing does not necessarily imply loss of control on the direction of the project. After-all, aren't there many contributors to the Linux kernel yet requiring blessing by Linus himself before being incorporated into the main source tree? On the other hand, the various Linux distributions (from a common kernel) are focused on a few aspects which tie together the main contributors to a given distribution? Mint and MythTV are examples which comes to mind for multimedia delivery.

Maybe there could be some synergies with the Haiku project - after-all, isn't the SkyOS File System a derivative of the BeOS File System?

This may come 5 years later than it should have. Nevertheless, still better late than never or before complete bit erasure.
