SkyOS A set of major changes in SkyOS is now complete. The entire GUI subsystem was rewritten to support desktop composing including flicker free drawing, double buffering, full alpha transparency, plugable composing effects, etc. Secondly, PE support has been dropped completely, and all libraries, applications, drivers, and the kernel are now ELF binaries. Thirdly, everything is now compiled with GCC 4.1.1 and the latest binutils. And last, but personally definitely not least: SkyOS now has support for BeOS people files. Other than the above, a lot of bugs were fixed as well.

I'm sure that 99.(9)% of average users don't care about the source.

Wakey-wakey. You're on OSnews, a site where most people do care about the source. And most of the 99% don't even know what source and Linux are.

please say "source code" if you mean that, otherwise, I'm not sure you know what "source" is.
