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 a main desktop
by Digger on Tue 29th Mar 2005 16:50 UTC

I signed up as a beta-tester back when 5.0 was announced.

I was (and still am) excited by the concept. 30$ was chicken feed. Still is if you think about it, how many of you smoke? Or drink?

In any case, skyos has come a long way, I am fortunate enough to have access to a large variety of hardware, and am able to custom build a box to meet the OSes' needs.

The "original" 5.0 version was not suitable for the desktop, but improvements have come rapidly and I hope the b8.4 is.

Nice work guys!
