ReactOS Now this is what I like to see. Smaller, alternative operating systems have been dying by the dozens these past 6 years or so, so in order for the remainder to survive, they need to work together. ReactOS and Haiku have been doing that for a while now, and the latest fruits of this collaboration is a much-improved USB stack for ReactOS.

SkyOS wasn't open-source though. It's next-to-impossible to kill a FOSS operating system. Look at AtheOS, that got abandoned, but got forked by the (albeit floundering) Syllable OS


Although, Cosmoe was also forked from AtheOS and is basically dead now...

But yes, it's hard to kill FOSS, it tends to just fizzle into obscurity, but the sources are likely still out there somewhere!
