SkyOS "The general feeling that SkyOS gives is... Simply great! A lot of work done under the hood seems to be paying back with a solid, responsive operating system. It scales very nicely, opening up a lot of OpenGL demos and other applications at once doesn't seem to affect stability, however it is currently very resource hungry (600MB RAM usage and up isn't anything strange while using Firefox, Gaim and having a few more apps open). Let us not forget that this is a debug build. It is completely usable and boots blazingly fast (~15 seconds from GRUB to desktop) though." My take: The best change? The new versioning scheme. Really.

SkyOS has not enabled its swap function in its betas
so that is why it uses, and needs, lots of RAM.
I got some troubles with the nvidia drivers,
but for the rest it works fine, well, it
is suitable as a surf os, but that is it.
Well, it is still beta, keep that in mind.
