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!

"For crying out loud people get a grip! If you don't want to pay for a Beta/Final version - that's fine. Don't! If you disagree with the closed source nature of SkyOS - that's fine too. You can always use Linux/BSD/Syllable and others.
But do we have to hear about it every time? There's nothing illegal/immoral about trying to make a living in your field of expertise.
It's a simple choice - not a religious philosphy."

Exactly right! Opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one, so just make sure you're not being one! I come here to read (and occasionally share) "intelligent" comments from others and weigh my opinions, knowledge, and beliefs against theirs for my own benefit and theirs. I learn much from this site and them. I don't come here so that some can be "self-important" with their comments while they're actually displaying how little they know of the world around them.
