SkyOS The future of SkyOS, the closed-source alternative operating system, had been hanging by a thread for a long time now. Barely any releases, until they came to a grinding halt altogether and Robert Szeleney explained he was pondering the future of SkyOS, and where to take it from here. One of the main problems was a lack of driver support which really made development difficult. Well, this is a problem Szeleney might be able to fix.

I agree, this is definitely an interesting experiment.

By taking nothing but the kernel, SkyOS will not be just another linux distro (or netbsd derivative).

This might actually also benefit the Haiku/BeOS guys. If Robert wants to use SkyFS partitions, the kernel will need proper support for that (instead of the experimental bfs driver).

I also think this is a reasonable move to make. SkyOS will benefit immensely from this. There is still hope. SkyOS/Linux!
