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.

Well, Haiku seem to do many things right, just very, very slowly... it is really in a different league from SkyOS and Syllable. These two can already be installed and actually used, if in a limited fashion, while Haiku is still at the stage when they get excited because Tracker actually started up without crashing...
