SkyOS Over the past couple of months, I've been getting a number of emails asking me about SkyOS' status. Since I didn't know anything beyond what's on the SkyOS website, and because, well, I have no affiliation with SkyOS, I couldn't really reply to these emails. However, after yet another email sent to me late last week, I decided to simply... Email Robert Szeleney, the man behind the project.

RE: I vote for NetBSD

Good point, I have always like the principles that drive BSD development but hated what it takes to set it up.

Apple made it easy to use, but wants an arm, a leg and whatever is left in your wallet. ;)

SkyOS on top of BSD would remove his problems with drivers and give him a very stable kernel.

I hope he choses a plan soon, in another year or two he may be too far behind to catch up.

Choose...? Plan...? WILL be behind...?

Don't bet on that one - he's too busy baby-sitting and writing software for the iPhone...

Hmmm, writing software for the iPhone? But I thought he didn't have time any longer to write software but yet he writes iPhone apps? What the ... ????!!!!!

I'm sure, all those having forked over money for the "beta" program have learned their lessons...

Maniac out.

Indeed, that would be a fun experiment. Incoorporate it as a part of a BSD project (NetBSD is a good choice ;) ). Focus on a tiny selection of hardware, and make it exceptionally stable, user-friendly, and well-tuned. Something a BSD project could achieve in its cathedral-style projects.
