A Fork of OpenBFSEdit

SkyFS is a fork of OpenBFS, but since the release of SkyOS 5.0 Beta 8.2, SkyFS is no longer compatible with it, because of significant changes and enhancements:

  • Implementing a bootloader into the SkyFS driver
  • Changing the "Magic ID"
  • Improving the overall performance
  • Other minor improvements and enhancements
