OSNews, Generic OSes GEOS managed to offer nearly all the functionality of the original Mac in a 1 MHz computer with 64 Kilobytes of RAM. It wasn't an OS written to run on a generic x86 chip on a moving hardware platform. It was written using immense knowledge of the hardware and the tricks one could use to maximise speed. Note: After a small break, here is another one of the articles for the Alternative OS contest.

one of my favorite things about this article is that the presentation comes across as being completely informative and factual in nature. A+++.

I didn't have to suffer through countless jabs at other OS's, or hear about how this one was the best OS ever built.

very nice indeed.
