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'm not aware of any realities that have changed that make a Proprietary OS a bad idea...

Do you remember 1990? Hell, even back in 1995 we still thought that OS/2 had a chance, and that MIPS and Alpha would soon replace x86. Apple was still in the game, thinking about Copland and Gerswhin, and IBM was dreaming up an OS with Taligent. Now, the Microsoft hegemony is complete, IBM is out of the OS game, and Apple exists because Microsoft allows it to.
