SkyOS There have been some interesting updates over at SkyOS. First of all, it now has a VNC viewer, so you can control other computers from SkyOS. Another interesting addition are a set of VMWare tools; SkyOS now has full clipboard integration with the host OS when running in VMWare. Also added is seamless mouse integration, so you can just move your mouse to the edge of the VMWare window, and it will automatically ungrab it. There have been more changes, you can see the most prominent on SkyOS's website. For the under-the-hood changes, see the changelog.

The rate at which SkyOS progresses is quite impressive. There are only a few developers on it, aren't there?

Either way, it's probably the most interesting new OS out there.

Personally, I will probably only try final, but not use it for more than a day. I'm waiting for a second iteration to put some more polish on it.

Yeah,I just hope Beta 10 (when it comes) are more stable on my system than Beta 9. But it doesn't change the fact that it's really interesting.

And I like the approach so far, including porting applications until (if users want this) a native application has been written.

I'm not sure it's the most interesting OS but I'm definitely eager to see what the future will bring.

Why don't you a beta membership (or donate in another way ;) - you'll get access to all betas, and the final version as well ;)

Polish up? As in stability or applications available, functionality or this weird thing called eye candy? ;)
