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!

It's a bit pedantic to draw those dissimilarities, especially since I don't see SkyOS's developers contributing their original projects like Red Hat has.

The main point of contention is the argument that one can't make money with open source and Free software. I've shown that's wrong and you've just tried to downplay the amount of work Red Hat has put into their distro and into original projects started and built by them. Your argument is that the SkyOS developers deserve money for all their hard work. That's fine with me, but don't say that it takes a closed-source and non-Free OS to make money because that is absolutely wrong.
