Define "released."


Made available.

I comment in a similar fashion on every bit of SkyOS news because the OS looks amazing and I really want to get ahold of it.


It's easy, just join the beta team.

Or you can contribute something to the project. That way it is possible to join the beta-team without paying. That is how I joined ;-)

If you just want to test the system, then you will either have to wait for the public live CD or pay for it. But if you can contribute in some useful way then it is actually possible to join for free, free as in no money.... you do have to spend your time ;-)

Not anymore. According to his site after giving away 65 free ones only 4 actually contributed.
So if you're interested cough up $30 (less than 20) and you can join the beta program... and eventually get V1.0
