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!

better applications on SkyOS
by d on Tue 29th Mar 2005 19:13 UTC

Besides paying $30 to congratulate you on an immense effort, what do I get with SkyOS that I do not get with a custom Debian install?

What native applications are there only available on SkyOS, or that run better (require less cpu / ram) on SkyOS?

A file system is great, but it's not everything or BeOS would be on everyone's desktop and pocket PC by now.

I personally don't give a rat's behind about the licensing, just "is it better (and how) that what is currently available, or does it solve any problems that other solutions do not.)
