SkyOS The SkyOS website went offline last week following the expiration of its domain name. SkyOS was a thing way, way back in the day, but fizzled out due to disinterest from its lead (and only) developer. It's definitively gone now - I used to have virtually every release from 2.x onwards on discs here, but I threw them all out a few years ago. If you're feeling nostalgic, peruse our SkyOS news archive.

this is a good news, because even if in fact skyos did die many years ago, some people still could not believe it at all, and some where still hoping that it will come back. To me it's still a big question, why robert didn't open up the code, which, i guess, could have been a better idea, than killing it.

Now I can finally removed the SkyOS webside from my favorites, all hope is gone.

The only thing I can think of why he didn't make it open source instead of let I just die is that he maybe used some GPL code where he wasn't allowed to and don't what to get problems because he open sources it so everbody can see.
