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.

This is one of the more in-depth article that I have ever read on this website and the author managed to get me interested through the whole thing. I felt as much pleasure reading this as I did on the article about MorphOS.

Iīm so glad that he didnīt spend more than one or two paragraphs describing the installation compared to other "reviews" that we see out there. This must be one of the supidest thing to do when reviewing an OS since you (ideally) only do it once!

I was old enough to use computers back then but I only got the chance to play with the MSX besides the IBM PC.

Kudos, Kroc. Thank you for a very good read.
