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.

No one has access to the code so nothing can be proven.

Exactly, you might as well stop there, because pretty much everything else you keep spouting is nothing but bullshit and speculation. You're clearly an ass, you can stop proving it to us now.

If SkyOS was based on Linux or BSD, it would be lightyears ahead of where it is. I can't even get it to boot on a multitude of systems that run BSD and Linux just fine, thanks.

Oh right I'm the ass, not Robert who I warned people about years ago.

Try reading more carefully next time. I never said it was based on FreeBSD or Linux. He most likely lifted code from things like the scheduler and networking stack. A direct fork would be too obvious.

Funny I was also called names years ago when I told people to not support SkyOS because there were too many red flags.

Note that I never said anything remotely similar about Haiku or ReactOS. Haiku especially has a good team and I wish them the best. SkyOS however has always reeked of BS from the beginning and I'm sorry if you didn't smell anything.
