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!

That's what makes Linux (and open source in general), a safer bet on the desktop --- actual demonstrated growth. Growth, ultimately, is the difference between a vital product and a moribund one.
