It just boot and hang after the kernel reaching PCI probing during the installation so I can’t install it at all on my Fujitsu Lifebook. Linux matter? NOOO since my notebook is running XP and RH8. IT IS Mandrake matter (and Suse too).
MD9 also fail during configuration on my server. Well, I just can say it is still not suitable for me.
The above posting supposed to be under the Mandrake 9.0: It Takes Two, Baby
blue eyed os and sky os are nothing more than widget sets?
I think that SkyOS is a bit more than a widget set! But following the link would find out all that stuff.
SkyOS releases can be downloaded on the Downloads section of their homepage (http://skyos.org/downloads) – you can grab and install SkyOS. BlueEyedOS, AFAIS, only made kernel_server+libroot.so (beta version 1) available for download.
SkyOS is a complete OS written ‘from scractch’, even if I don’t understand why it gets stuck with strange limitations (ie ‘pure x86’, unpolished UI, a registry !, …) , it’s a fabulous work.
BlueEyedOS is not a set of widgets, but an OS based on the linux kernel. We released a first version of the low level stuff (KernelKit) and plan to release a part of the UI.
It seems to be progressing very good.. I’m impressed
I am always impressed with the technical achievement of coding SkyOS but I do doubt its place somewhat among the hobby OS’s as it doesn’t really seem to fit in anywhere.
It is quite suprising what one man can do with a little motivation and a modicum of skill!
I am always curious about a new OS. I was wondering what the intended audience/niche was for this OS and what kind of Apps were available for it. A cursory read through the website did not make this obvious to me.
I was wondering what the intended audience/niche was for this OS
No niche intended. It’s a *hobby* OS, that mean the guy behind it work on his baby for the fun only. Not to fulfill any niche of whatsoever.
and what kind of Apps were available for it
I doubt there’s any major app for it yet, until a bunch of hobbyist decide to take some time to port apps over it.
