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.

... try making something as functional as SkyOS as quickly as it has been developed. I'm not saying SkyOS is great, and I'm not saying any other OS should rule the world, but one thing _is_ for certain: Try writing an OS (I know I have), and you will definitely appreciate the work that Robert and the rest of the SkyOS contributors have put in. By the way, it's me... NoorulIslaam ;)
