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 I think the whole open source argument is a little unfair (it's his project and FOSS isn't the answer for every development), at the very least he should be looking for partners.

Well, it may be unfair, but with the current state of the project it isn't an outlandish argument. SkyOS is undead. The creator doesn't want to go on working on it, but the creator also refuses to let go. In it's current state it is just another comatose project without any real life relevance. Either set it free or let it die.

Claiming with a straight face there is still life in something that hasn't taken one breath in over a year is delusional.

Hense my point.
There are other options outside of death and open source
