Alright, it seems we're close to releasing another beta build for our beta testers. The new USB functionality is finally working for Adamk "Mr Special Hardware", so we're ready in that department. If USB doesn't work for you, we won't believe you. No, but seriously, we just need to sort out some printing issues experienced by a few of our alpha testers and we're good to go. SkyOS is really looking good and ready as ever. For a beta build, that is.
We are also thinking about including Gnash, the opensource implementation of Flash Player v7. Regardless how good or bad it currently is, it'll lay the groundwork for a better implementation in the future, so Robert is considering it very seriously ("one day of work to port it" - were his words). Would you rather be able to play some flash animations, or none at all? Right. It's not going to be included in the next beta build AFAIK and it is important to understand that we make no promises of ever including it, but I guess we own you some information about what's going on behind the scenes here at skyos.org. Just join us on IRC and you'll be almost behind the scenes already.
