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.

Nice to pick GEOS to write about. The author really seem to know a lot about it. The article is a bit to long to keep me intrested all the way. I think the author should try to write more efficent next time. But over all a very nice article.
