Syllable has been in beta for years as well, as well as other OSes.

I think Syllable is still in alpha, not beta.
Skyos looks not so bad from the screenshots, but on a modest pc I think it's a little slow. As I can remember I thik it needs a lot of resources compared to syllable.
I must admit that the amount of work that robert put in it is very impressive. Perhaps he`s a robot and not a human ;-)

Lots of debugging and unoptimized code running in SkyOS. Remove that, and it is much, much faster.

The dev guys say that's mostly down to the debugging code left in during SkyOS's beta releases. I think it should be safe to assume that the final release will be much nippier.

Syllable also doesn't cost me anything to beta test it on my hardware, doesn't pretend it will be done RSN, doesn't pretend to have created everything (minus SkyOS of course...) from the coding of one man--50+ hour work weeks aside...need I go on?

No-one is forcing you to buy in to the beta.
