1. I hate windows but linux is too much of a pain in the ass to maitain. Is skyOS easier to keep up and running?

2. will it run surround sound on my soundblaster live?

3. will the media player run divx, mpg, and dvd?

4. lastly when will gaim be availble?...this will not make me refrain from trying it out, I am just curious.

Yes, much easier to use than Linux. It's as easy as Windows, if not more.

Not at this time. SkyOS has very limited driver support.

Yes, the Media Player does all these things.

I would guess it would come out with SkyOS 5, but only the dev team can really answer this one.
