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!

GUI seems a nice hybrid of XP but leaning more towards Os X.

Lets see Start button on the top center. Hard disk image on left instead of the right. All this ripped right off Windows

Installation windows with status being shown in list form on the left-lifted straight from Os X.

So far I haven't seen anything original. May be easier just to buy a Mac mini with excellent included iLife software and built in support for iPod.

But, all in all, an excellent effort for a one-man project.
