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.

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.

Yes, it is my opinion that there is more to the networking problems then just a DNS issue. On IRC, however, Robert said he wants to get the DNS issues resolved first, before looking into other problems.
