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.

Now Libranet is nothing but a very good memory, and no current Debian-distribution comes even close to providing something as user-friendly and extensive as Adminmenu or the Libranet installer. I still cherish my Libranet 3.0 CD set, but unfortunately I lost (removed) my last checkout of our internal Subversion development tree. Would be fun to see how much still builds ;) .


Hi Daniel
I am an old Libranet user (S.1704).
And yet I didn't know what you just told me, thanks ;)
I couldn't agree more that "no current Debian-distribution comes even close to providing something as user-friendly and extensive as Adminmenu or the Libranet installer"
It is really a shame that the community felt that too much work was involved. Unfortunately I am not a dev, but I could have helped in some other way, i.e. translating/promoting the distro (I am very good at that).
I also cherish my Libranet 3.0 CDs and DVD, but unfortunately it does not support my hardware: 1 desktop and 1 laptop, both (almost) bleeding edge.
OTOH I am not very keen on running an OS in a virtual environment.
