SkyOS A new video from the SkyOS site shows off the IndexFeeder and the Viewer displaying live results. The video was captured in VMWare showing a few queries made over a 40GB attribute and file content indexed filesystem. There is also a document explaining a few internals of the indexing system used in SkyOS.

I see you guys are aiming at a more OS X like interface. Problem is it's easy to make gradients and alpha stuff, but to do it right and make it usable is another thing! Why don't you contact a/some skinner(s) from thee Neowin forum? There are 2 or 3 people who are really good and I bet they are interested!

And what I think would be a great idea is to implement 2 interfaces. One basic (without flashy gradient stuff) and one shiny, BUT in the same spirit. Not like Win9x and Luna look for example but something coherent. I know there are a lot of guys out there who don't like shiny stuff.

I'll probably sign up for the beta testing soon, I like the way you're heading! Keep it up!
