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.

AROS is still alive and kicking as well.

Minix is not an hobby OS.

Is is an active mikro-kernel operating system being developed at Amsterdam university with EU funds.

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...

Why is memory protection always the only argument vocalized against AROS? If that is the only thing that makes it "not modern" or "legacy" would the dropping of 68k software and hardware compatibillity and swapping to a newer kernel spark more than an brief interest by the detractors? I doubt it very much!

The nostaliga bit is a part of the experience, but how would you solve the problem with bringing AROS around to be more modern?

A new kernel with SMP, AMP, and memory protection would indeed be nice. But as most amiga folks know that would break a great many things, is it worth the sacrifice?
