In order to "workaround" the driver issue reported earlier I'm in the middle of doing a few proof of concepts:
1) Using the Linux Kernel
2) Using a NetBSD Kernel
1) Linux Kernel
A Linux (184.108.40.206) from scratch (LFS) is used as base containing only a the absolute necessary userland tools in order to operate a linux kernel. On top of this kernel the SkyOS API (SkyGI, etc...) is ported. In order to get the graphical user interface running the SkyGI Kernel part (which resists in the SkyOS kernel itself) is ported to userland and converted to something similar like the appserver. Only the linux kernel will be used. No textmode. From a user point of view no difference should be visible between the current SkyOS kernel on this proof of concept linux kernel.
Similar to 1) but with a NetBSD Kernel.
Based on the results of these proof of concepts (e.g. performance, user experience, etc.) further decisions regarding the SkyOS future can be made.
Thanks for your patience
