SkyOS "This release features new core components like the integrated mouse gestures, new Font system and API, new applications (Pixel Image Editor, ...) and various driver/system updates as well as more than 200 fixed bugs reported in our bug tracking system." In addition, the SkyOS team has decided that the version numbers got too confusing. Therefore, SkyOS v5 will now simply be named SkyOS. I might even start missing the "SkyOS v5 Beta 8.4 Alpha 1 of the 3rd Beta Released" headlines. In any case, here's the changelog.

SkyOS is a joke

Beta 10, Beta 11, Beta 13...Beta 55, Beta 56. Their whole Beta testing is becoming a joke. They will keep on releasing Beta versions forever. Maybe our grandchildren will be able to enjoy SkyOS 5.0 Beta 983.

Have you looked at how many bugs have been fixed since the last beta? I suppose you're used to Microsoft's method of using customers to beta test the software that's marked as release level. Me, I'll stick with someone who calls beta software beta.

Frequent updates are nice because I can get some of the more annoying bugs fixed instead of having to wait another six months until all (or most all) bugs are taken care of. Again, you're too used to the MS method of fixing (some) bugs only once a year (unless they make the news).
