Journal davidwr's Journal: What is your favorite 20th-century OS? 1

What is your favorite 20th-century OS version or distribution? Mainframe OSes are fair game.

The main rule is has to be officially unsupported as of January 1, 2000. Rule #2 is you had to actually USE it at least once. No "I heard the Amiga was cool."

I like the Commodore 64 and MacOS 2.0.

What is your favorite 20th-century OS?

  • Small, fast, microkernel-based, autoconfiguring, what's not to like? The whole OS was on two floppies and 512kB ROM, and supported scalable fonts and all kinds of other goodness. The only lameness of the whole thing was the .info filesd. :)
