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.

Most alternative OS seldom move beyond the hobby status and as such are doomed to fail when their developers move on to something else.

The only reason GNU/Linux and BSD have succeeded is because the big boys saw a way to move away from expensive UNIX contracts while keeping an UNIX compatible environment.

Still, this being an alternative OS web site, it is sad to see this happening.
