Wow SkyOS called, they want their UI back. Is it just me, or do they look similar?

I don't care, SkyOS is quite nice BUT it's 1) proprietary 2) there aren't any apps. Komodo is 1) GPL 2) compatible with Linux apps.

It's more similiar to OS X's I think. Far more similiar. Not that SkyOS wasn't inspired by OSX as well...

Only the actual contents of the windows is ours and the UI stuff there is just a theme to test it. The look and indeed layout of all the UI stuff can be changed with a new theme plugin. Besides, I've never even looked at SkyOS screenshots: this is just what came out when I tried to use a PDF like API to build a theme engine.
