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!

I would like to point out that there is no restriction from bundling open-source applications into a proprietary operating system release. Back to my painting analogy, each one of those open source programs is like a color. Not being allowed to use open source applications in a proprietary operating system is like saying "Well everyone is allowed to use the color red, but not on any paintings that aren't editable by the public." If you don't want these software programs to be used by anyone else, DON'T MAKE THEM OPEN SOURCE. If it is open source, it is open to everybody, what is so hard to understand about that.
"The Mona Lisa may be a masterpiece but I was not allowed to change the woman's hair color, therefore it is bad." Give me a break.
