But Syllable, SkyOS, Haiku, Menuet, ReactOS, are pretty much dead.
You are only partially correct.
is far from dead. In fact, quite the opposite it has a lot of momentum and a beta usable on a daily basis should not be very far IMO.
is actively developed, but I don't think it's going anywhere because of Windows' complexity and constant improvement. Playing catchup is a bitch.
Judging from the progress they're making
looks kinda dead or dying.
has a lot of releases and shows constant progress although there are only a handful of people working on it. Also, I don't think its objective is to take on Windows, but just to showcase how far you can get only with assembler.
is indeed dead. It's a pity because Robert (the author) is a freaking genius and SkyOS was in many ways ahead of the desktop OSes of its time. Probably working on your own OS doesn't quite pay the bills though. Still if someone were to pay a nice salary to this guy to work full-time on SkyOS, probably in a year or two it would reach feature parity with the serious desktop OSes.
