SkyOS now runs Linux binaries natively

Their Linux emulation layer lies inside the SkyOS kernel, I wonder if there are any GPL violations going on here. Their future plans involve also an emulation layer for Windows applications, pretty much what ReactOS tries to do for the last few years for the WindowsNT model. Interviews and more information about both systems can be found on OSNews' web site, here and here."
