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."

Politics ruins everything.

SkyOS is basically a dictatorship. Annoying at times, but darn productive.

Nice quote ;)

Yes, having a leader that controls everything keeps the pace up. It's quite refreshing.

I really need to buy a copy.

The best argument for democracy is you get what you deserve.

I wouldn't call it a dictatorship; what I would call it is a small group of very skilled programmers who have layed out the direction in where they're heading; rather than throwing things at a problem and seeing what sticks; they see a problem, sit down, write a white paper, design it, and then implement it.

The problem with the Linux world, there are some good ideas (ALSA), but at the same time time there are situations where things are just abandoned - Rhythmbox and Pan Usenet Client being two prime examples of abandonware.
