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."

Who says there won't be a LiveCD before it matures past beta...

i'm just asking for a test cd ... it looks really cool, but it's imposible to test ... maybe if they had a beta live cd, i would test it, and then buy the beta.

To be perfectly honest, SkyOS just isn't at a state at present where having a LiveCD would give any sort of a meaningful experience with the system. A LiveCD has been a very popular request, and while certainly the BranchFS that has just been implemented is a step towards this goal, the simple fact of the matter is that other parts of the system need to mature a bit more before we are ready to make it available, "en masse". ;)

But don't worry, we're listening... ;)
