Conversations Amjith had the idea to do a series of articles "A-Z of Operating Systems" as kind of a resource covering major categories of OS. Do you think that would be interesting or useful? Should we focus primarily on lesser-known OSes, or include Windows and Linux, for example. Ideas?

Would that really not depend upon what actual content was given each OS? Learning more about some of the quirkier, lesser-known OSes is always good--but what is the commentary going to be about? [Are we looking at 26 articles where the comments are nothing but "yeah, but why use this OS, when Windows has everything you need"]

We need a fresh context for such a series of articles. How about focusing entirely on what each OS does that either i. no other OS does, and/or ii. current popular OSes don't do (Windows/OS X/Linux).
