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 don't want to go into that here, but one more post can be done:

Of course, I never said RedHat doesn't contribute back. But they built basically their entire operating system upon existing material, and only made alterations and additions, whereas SkyOS has been written from scratch, with only some additions from other projects. That's a major difference.

I'm not trying to belittle what RedHat has done/is doing, I'm just trying to put things in perspective here.
