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.

Using the Linux kernel makes sense, sort of, in order to have access to the large selection of Linux drivers.

But how about the applications? Will the 'new' SkyOS/Linux have original and unique SkyOS applications and tools, or will it use the same applications as every other operating system?
