OSNews, Generic OSes Discerning techies probably know of the the programming language occam, designed for the Inmos Transputer highly parallel processor from the 1980s. It's not so widely-known that occam is still around and available for the x86 in the form of the Kent Retargetable occam Compiler, KRoC - nor that there's an entire PC OS, complete with GUI, written in occam-pi: RMoX.

I know the GUI isn't the be all and end all of OSs, but none-the-less I'm loving the LCARS* theme used in this OS

* The interface used on Star Trek TNG / Deep Space 9 / Voyager computers.
