Sky 9 operating system

Sky9 is the latest Sky operating system by Enigma Productions. It was released in 2006 and includes many new features.

New featuresEdit

  • CurveCurve is the name of Sky9's user interface. It includes transparent windows and a transparent StarBar. Almost all of Sky9's features have a "shade layer," where a shadow of the application/icon is placed. Many of Sky8's features are inherited in Curve.
    • "Open desktop" — The "open desktop" in Sky9 leads the way in simplifying the interface. The taskbar is removed, and the StarBar is simplified to a simple 6 buttons/controls. It can be turned off, but this is not recommended because it can lead to clutter later on.
  • Fonts — The operating system includes 50 new fonts that are used varyingly to "add variety to the system".
  • StarBar — The StarBar replaces the Task Menu used in previous versions. It features more commands and a glossy tranparent feature.
  • Sky Clock — This icon at the top-right of the screen shows the time, date, and current weather conditions.
  • PLAY Media Center 9.5 — The new PLAY Media Center includes a new streamlined interface and new photo gallery features.
  • iSurfer — This is the latest version of Enigma's optional browsers. iSurfer includes tabbed browsing, simple controls and new EyeVision (.eye) image format support.
  • EyeVision support — Sky9 is one of two operating systems that supports EyeVision, the newly introduced image format that shows images in extremely high quality. Sky9 can be used to create and edit EyeVision documents.
