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.

While the first words are "Sky is not dead", what the complete mail means is much more simple:

Sky OS is dead.

The OS father do not want to call it so, but it is.

This is software. Nothing is buried. It can always be worked on again. But it is very unlikely and has no development whatsoever for years: by all means, it is just dead.

Sky OS did not deliver a real useable desktop, but it did not promise either, and was a great project (i bought the beta, years ago!)
