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."

A release date is ALWAYS a prediction, an aim;.....That's well above 50%, and hence the word "promise" (I actually thought this over before I published this) makes perfect sense.

"You said it has a 70% 5-year survival rate! You promised me she'd live!"

You're unbelievable.

God, Alex, you're really looking for things to attack me with, [aren't] you?

No! I'm not! I read the title and thought "holy shit! what did they do now?" The last thing I expected the news post to be about was that predictions blog, and frankly it pissed me off because I fell for your "play everything up" style.

"You said it has a 70% 5-year survival rate! You promised me she'd live!"

The fact you come up with a comparison to somebody/something dying or not is kind of... Weird. We're talking software here, I have limited space to make a headline, and I write headlines in the blink of an eye.

Do you really think that an OS used by 3 men and a cow is usable as a sensationalist item? Get over yourself, Alex, you're really starting to work on my nerves here. I showed you the dictionary entry for "promise" which CLEARLY shows that the word was a GOOD fit for this headline. The issue is settled, get over it.
