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."

The lead coder on SkyOS makes a lot of progress in a very short period of time. I think he has serious dedication to be working on a project like SkyOS when its obvious he could be putting his coding talents elsewhere and making a *lot* of money. I know I'd charge out the wazoo if I could pump out stable and working code at the demonic pace he does.

It's great to watch SkyOS grow: its kind of like watching a single-celled organism evolve into a human -- oops, er, sorry, "mindless ape."

Really, really good stuff here.
