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.

Little disappointed

I had heard of SkyOS before, but never really paid attention to it. I decided to give the website a look around. Needless to say, I was more than a tad bit disappointed to find it to be a closed source project, especially after apparently being an open source project prior to 5.0.

And it's not so much about having to pay to use it - I think $30 dollars is more than a reasonable amount to pay for an operating system.

Linux has taught me that being able to audit and modify the source code of an operating system to suit your needs is a Good Thing(TM). It seems that they're a very developer friendly community, but not being open source is a major turnoff.

Just my random and anonymous 2 cents.
