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.

no everyone but hardcore enthusiastics it's same what kernel an OS uses, what matters is if their hardware works with the OS. It wouldve taken decade worth of work hours from SkyOS to get hardware support to comparable levels as in Linux, therefore they changed to linux kernel. Normal users wont see the difference in any other way than the fact that the OS actually installs in their system now.

You could say it'll be Sky/Linux instead of Gnu/Linux
