SkyOS After a great deal of interest from the community, we have decided to officially open the "SkyOS Code Ransom". In a nutshell, the SkyOS Code Ransom is a system to encourage developers to port various software packages to SkyOS, as well as a way to reward them for their efforts. Depending on how successful and how much interest there is in the "SkyOS Code Ransom", we may expand this feature of the website a great deal more in the future.

I agree completely with you on that the framework is good bloat--if it's bloat at all. "Bloat" by defn is useless. I agree that the framework is fine. But those little tools are useless. The screen reader is useless, that is the one that comes with Windows.

Yes, the screen reader is useless in most cases, but there are times when it can still come in handy. For example: I've experienced many times when, while in the middle of something, Jaws (my screen reader) will crash for some reason. If it weren't for that little useless narrator I wouldn't be able to gracefully restart the system (there are other times when even narrator won't work, but that's a different topic). My windows doesnt fully crash much anyway.
