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!

Isn't this exactly the argument for open source software and against proprietary software? That proprietary software is typically closed to reuse/copy as well as extension (outside the controlled set of apis). The world is moving past proprietary software implementations, just some software development groups haven't realized that yet. Thankfully it appears that number [for SkyOS] is limited to about 500.
