I paid to join the beta programme but the only machine on which I could install SkyOS was a laptop with no serial port (MSI S270). SkyOS uses the serial port for debugging.

When it wouldn't boot properly, I sent Robert around 30 photographs of kernel debugging screens and tried various boot options as he requested. Then he ceased communication, my account was cancelled, but the beta fee was not refunded.

It's only a few Euros, it's not worth chasing, but it leaves a nasty taste in the mouth to be defrauded like that.

Wow, that sure sounds like a nasty thing to do :O I have no idea what Robert has in his mind but I don't really feel you either have any reason to lie here.
