SkyOS Hell was already frozen anyway, but apparantly, the SkyOS team is trying to bring hell's temperature to absolute zero, since they are saying 2007 might see a release of SkyOS 5. "After what seems about 30 years worth of work (I'm sure even more to Robert), SkyOS will finally be released to the public. Lots of details are still being worked out on this one (as well as the obvious issues still present in the system), but we're really shooting to make it happen."

Q: And like I said earlier, why should anyone pay him to test his OS?

A: Because they want to. Maybe they just want to use it for fun and they think it's worth the price, or maybe they want to support the project by paying for it. If they want to pay to use beta software, who are you to tell them they shouldn't? It's not like they're being lied to and told it is a finished product - would you rather SkyOS was released as is and then sold?

right, anyone who pays for skyos is paying to be part of the experience. like when you watch an artist and you pay for enjoying his talent.
