DOS? Single threaded? 16-bit? Fat 16? NO THANKS! I don't care how good it is for the price. I would sooner install NetBSD or DamnSmall with Black Box at least i get a modern web browser.

Nope, it's not single threaded. EVERYTHING is multithreaded (it actually takes more effort to create a single threaded app in GEOS than a multithreaded one), and the multitasking is fully preemptive. It's a hell of a lot more responsive than anything else you'll find - even OSNews's beloved BeOS.

GEOS uses DOS less than Win9x does.
