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 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.

Ah, dude, I think Lakedaemon was being facetious. You missed the point of his(/her/its) post entirely as far as I can see...

Granted things like sarcasm and facetiousness often become difficult to spot when translated to the limited format of a forum post, but if people take the time to read and comprehend what people actually write in full before getting your knickers in a knot, we can all enjoy a nice flame-free read.

You don't need to "think" anything; the guy enclosed part of his post in tags. But let me ask how you would respond to an inflammatory remark if it is made "facetious"?
The comment was neither witty nor funny but rather irritating. Saying something with supposed humorous intent shouldn't protect anything from scrutiny, especially not in writing.
