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."

Current price for the privilege of doing Robert's beta testing is $30. When did you sign up? Back in the year 2000 when it was promised to be released then?

I'm not going to look right now, but I'm pretty sure we didn't even start working on SkyOS 5 until roughly August of 2003, and we didn't start taking beta testers until January of 2004, so....

SkyOS started the beta program in December 2004 [1], while the first mention of SkyOS v5 was the design contest in - indeed - August 2003 [2].
