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 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. "

Actually it was FREE before 5.0. It hasn't been Open since before version 3, and that was actually a completely different OS anyway, just basically the same name.

And I don't get what's wrong with Closed Source! Open source has way more problems than closed. If it's closed, everything works with the OS. If it's open, a "Linux" application designed for redhat might not work on SuSe.

I commend SkyOS for choosing to keep the source closed.
