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!

SkyOS as main desktop
by arianon on Tue 29th Mar 2005 15:50 UTC

I'm thinking of signing up for the beta program because I love the structured direction of the OS. That is one of the problems I personally have with linux is that it grows uncontrollably in all directions and it is hard to stay on top of everything, for most people thats a plus, but for me its a negative.

I was just curious if anyone uses SkyOS for their main desktop, or spends most of their time in it. Is there enough software for it to be pretty useable at this point? I know its in beta, but just curious. Thanks.
