SkyOS Mono 1.1.13 has been ported to SkyOS. All mono assemblies for .NET 1.1 and .NET 2.0 have been ported as well. Porting Managed.Windows.Forms has begun and is almost finished. SkyOS's lead developer, Robert Szeleney, was responsible for this difficult port. He has written an account of that process. "Porting Mono was not an easy task at all."

One could say that because Robert originally wrote the kernel for SkyOS, he is most familiar with it's inner workings - and thus he can quickly fix or change it as necessary for the next porting project.

I'm fairly certain YellowTab doesn't have any developers who originally wrote the BeOS kernel or the rest of the system for that matter.

Also, SkyOS doesn't have to maintain any backwards-compatibility with previous (BeOS) software - and therefore breaking binary compatibility, or removing APIs is still possible.

Otherwise, I think I agree - it seems like Robert has a serious passion for his OS, and it shows.
