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.

That's a really good idea. I paid for the beta and would absolutely chip in some more money to see the project survive in one form or another.

That's a mentality I don't understand. You paid and were never given a finished product, so you'd be willing to pay yet more for an unfinished system?

I paid because I love operating systems. The experience was worth every penny. Even knowing how it turned out, I'd do it again. It was such a fun ride while it lasted.

I just wish I still had a copy of the last beta to play with.

Same here, but it was wasted money.
Their pretence to create a proprietary one man OS, which would "compete with Windows" (that is what I used to read back then) was preposterous.
Goodbye SkyOS, you won't be missed.
