SkyOS Not too long ago, Robert Szeleney put the development of SkyOS on a temporary hold. The challenges in keeping up with the ever-changing world of hardware support were simply too big to continue SkyOS then-current development model. As a result, Szeleney recently came up with the idea of using a Linux or NetBSD kernel as the base for SkyOS. Well, we've got a progress report on that one, and in true Szeleney fashion, a lot of work has already been done.

OSes aren't kernels

If you think OS=kernel, then can you explain me how MacOS is close to FreeBSD ????

I regard my Mac as a Unix box with good support for commercial software. The kernel sets the personality of an OS even if the modern trend of running userland program in a vm levels this a bit.
