The fact that this project is still alive after this long is amazing in itself. I always look forward to hearing the updates about this project and check the skyos www now and again also.

Open Source Schmopen Schmource. I get tired of the 'everything for free for ME' attitude. Anything good is worth paying for.

Yeah. A lot of people seem to confuse "Open Source" with "it must not cost anything".
Wonder if the same people would be as willing to take a serious paycut (or work without pay) at their current job so that the company they work for can give away their product for free?
