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.

Good night sweet prince. From all the "hobby OS" projects of early 2000s with at least the GUI working at that time, the only one still alive and relatively well is Haiku. Well, there is Syllable and ReactOS still kicking, but let's not go there.

SkyOS could live or at least be available for playing with if the only developer would open the sources. Proprietary software sux ballz.

Yup, pity for us people around here does not consider operating systems based on a kernel with no modern capabilities (like memory protection) that runs in less new machines interesting despite the small memory and resource footprint; hope they might change their mind with the same technology wrapped on a more modern kernel like Anubis or Arix might be fnally released...
