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!

latest beta runs great, dont anybody listen to the OSS trolls, they will start flamewars just to do it, not even if they have a valid point or not. I had no trouble paying for beta access, some people pay for microsofts beta access (a hell of alot more than 30 dollars mind you) and that 30 dollars doesnt just go towards you getting the final product. it goes into buying hardware to test and make compatible with the operating system, so basically your paying for the chance to whet your appetite for something different, the chance to make changes and be part of molding this os into something good, and stable, you pay to help get hardware supported, and you get your cd when it switches final. 30 bucks for all of that is being generous, and if some of you actually do work in this field, 30 bucks is less than an hours work pay ;)
