SkyOS SkyOS has gotten a new virtual filesystem, dubbed BranchFS. This makes it possible to branch filesystems, convert read-only media into read-write media, and add SkyFS attributes to non-SkyFS volumes. "BranchFS makes it possible to make a reversible filesystem. By using your system partition you can revert to a previous state (with just one reboot) and and when using a CD BranchFS makes it possible to make changes to the content. BranchFS is still in heavy development but branching a LiveCD works quite well already. The first SkyOS LiveCD will be based on BranchFS."

It's good to see innovation happening in a small hobby OS. Kind of puts Microsoft and their failed WinFS in perspective.

BTW, '...reboot) and and when...'

i'm too amazed by the pace and amount of work done by Robert, but can you please elaborate, how is a virtual filesystem something new or innovative?
virtual filesystems are a common thing in unix, linux, windows, etc.
