SkyOS In the next beta of SkyOS, users can look forward to seeing a completely re-designed Viewer. The new Viewer will take advantage of the powerful features of the SkyFS (derived from Haiku's BFS), including extremely fast searching and organizing of files, on-the-fly filtering of files and folders within the Viewer, fast insertion of meta-data into multiple files, and more. Update: Screenshots!

RE: Making money

youknowmewell, it is a control thing, just not a bad one. Lets say an operating system is a painting. Robert and the people at SkyOS are making a painting that pleases them, they don't want everybody else to be able to change it at a whim. Can't you just accept this. If you like their product you buy and support it. If you don't then simply forget it ever existed. Open source stuff is like a group made painting, everybody sees it as a compromise of sorts. Most people are happy with some aspects and unhappy about others. It is definitely NOT an issue of ignorance. Next time "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
