I spend a fair amount of time working with legacy operating systems. Apart from being obsolete themselves they suffer from a common problem - the web browsers are simply unusable on a present day Internet. You start by getting JavaScript error on google.com and it only gets worse once you go further. Try going to microsoft.com with IE 1.5 or qnx.com with the last version of Voyager. This just doesn't work. With rapid progression of web standards, the situation will only be getting worse in time. Something had to be done.

This is some really cool stuff.

Before the viability of open source browser code-bases the WWW was pretty unusable for many alternative operating systems.

One of the reasons I never used BeOS 4/5 as a daily OS was due to its poor web browser support with Netpositive.
