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.

Guess it paid more off developing games for mobile devices...
You could check them out here: www.djinnworks.at
But sad thing he didn't open source it when moving away from developing SkyOS.

Yeah he's been doing mobile games for a while now.

Open source would be nice. Unlikely, though.

not completely sure about that.

let's see what happened to WebOS. It was opensourced but it did not get interest from the masses.

maybe to have it and see how it was done does make some sense, but to have it being developed again... I hesitate so.
