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.

Haiku looks promising.

Yet, through Be-nary compatibility and Be-threads,
Haiku herited one of the Inherent "weakness" of Beos : it is difficult to port things to BeOS/Haiku.

Wanna bet with me, what Os will get open office 2.0 first ?
Haiku or SkyOS ?
