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!

It is a better strategy than going bankrupt because of bending over backwards to provide free betas. It is a better strategy than letting anyone put your OS in the direction they want rather than the well-thought-out direction you want it to go in, to a niche that isn't filled. It is a better strategy than trying to exactly emulate what Linux is doing, because know what, if it did this thread wouldn't exist, no one would even realize SkyOS wasn't another Linux distro, and no one would care to pay for it, and it would go bankrupt. It is a much, much better strategy than any of those concepts.
