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.

It was his pet vapor-ware project and now he finds iphone development more interesting.

Open sourcing the code would just reveal how much GPL and BSD code he actually took.

And you have proof supporting this statement?

You kill and eat babies. I'm sure of it. I can't prove it, but I just know.

You're naive if you think he created a posix compatible monokernel and an original tcp/ip stack without borrowing a significant amount of GPL and BSD code.

He's a very talented developer but also a liar.

Ask him to open source just the kernel and tcp/ip stack for academic reasons. Let's see what lousy excuse he comes up with.
