SkyOS Lots of news on SkyOS. Kaffe using GNU Classpath (without AWT) is now working fine on SkyOS, just like Wine. Although there is no Wine graphics driver yet, you can already start Windows console applications directly from within SkyOS (once a Wine/SkyGI backend is available Wine should run on SkyOS as good as it does on Linux, and will be available via Software Store). On the driver side there is now an ACPI driver including support for ACPI power/sleep buttons (a SkyOS service, the PowerMonitor, will react on power events with configurable actions like shutdown, reboot, etc.). And finally, the SkyOS LiveCD is shaping together and should soon be available. Take a look at the changelog for all updates. Note: If you have problems accessing the SkyOS.org website, please click read more for how to solve this issue. Other than that, read more for a first glimpse of yet another improvement coming to SkyOS.

I love how in the modern age of networking

IIRC, there is a problem with the domain ownership of the skyos.org domain (a third party owns it) - and the SkyOS team doesn't have direct control over it. There is only so much you can do in that situation.

That's true. Indra Gunawan, one of the SkyOS developers in the 1.0 days, is the domain's legal owner and the one who actually manages DNS entries. Robert can only get changes made when convenient for Indra.

The problem is that one of the seven nameservers listed gives out the IP of the old host. So unfortunately one in every seven of you should have to use this hosts fix.

The hosts hack is backwards. Instead of:
www.skyos.org 85.214.66.177
the line should have the IP address first:
85.214.66.177 www.skyos.org

But even so, that doesn't seem to be the problem. The host and dig commands each return the correct IP address for me, so I think the browser is getting it right also. But I've been having difficulty getting to the site for weeks.
