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'll be buying-in soon

Once the parts arive to finish-up my second desktop, I'll be putting SkyOS on it, atleast until the -final of Hoary comes out.. but if it's good, I'll stick with it.

I really couldn't care less that it isn't open source, SkyOS still contributes back in many other ways (it isn't forced to, but the project still does). I bet the majority of people here saying they won't pay to play with SkyOS are those sitting on XP machines right now.

I mean, $30, it's hardly going to break the bank, and if you can't afford that, then it's probably because you're 14 years old and wouldn't have much to contribute anyway.
