Windows An intrepid web developer has re-created the entire Windows 3.1 experience within a browser window, including games, notepad, and a web browser. Truth be told, the included web browser is a major anachronism, since it's apparently standards-compliant in 2010.

The Unix fans in the crowd might also be interested in Marcin Roguski's website, which has the look and feel of the old Silicon Graphics IRIX operating system GUI.

It even has a boot process -

It's a few years old, but it's very cool.


That brings back great memories - I'd love to see someone recreate the whole IRIX GUI experience from the ground up on a great operating system core - of course with some subtle updates. It was one of the few UNIX's out there that didn't royally suck when it came to usability.
