With the amount of complaining, nit-picking & sheer mean-spiritedness that commenting systems such as this make available, it just amazes me that anyone like Robert even makes the attempt, let alone does such an incredible job.

The last I checked, no one is holding a gun to anyone's head to purchase into the SkyOS beta program, nor is SkyOS being guaranteed to make periodic (every two weeks???? please.) releases.

If people don't want to partake, fine. Just please keep the nasty comments down to a dull roar.

My hat's off to Robert -- he's a coding machine! ;) I hope that all of his hard work eventually pays off for him, beyond the satisfaction of his own personal achievement.

Agreed. Rather than making constructive criticisms it seems people would sooner resort to slander based on speculation. I really don't see how those kind of comments help anyone - be it the SkyOS or the OSS community.

Some people really need to grow up.
