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.

The ST in Atari ST stood for Sixteen/Thirtytwo.
The later and last ones with 68030 in them where called TT. Reminds me of the 386SX somehow, but that came much later, didn't it?
