Syllable, AtheOS Like many others, I was a long-time lurker on the atheos mailing list. I was happy to see it get forked, because it seemed to mean that some real progress would get made. In many ways that seems to have happened, and in others... Not so much. Note: This is the 3rd entry to our Alternative OS Contest which runs through 14th July!

While I think virtualization can have some merits for some uses, one of which is playing around with different OSes minus the need to actually install, it's a horrible way to get an accurate feel for the quality of the OS itself. I've often seen folk have to spend a good deal of time fighting with quirks in the software (like vmware), instead of really getting to use the operating system itself.
