OSNews, Generic OSes When new operating systems gets designed today, great systems such as Amiga, Atari and VMS, seems to get overlooked in regard to their original features not found on other OSes. It might be time to collect and categorize those special unique features under the great/lost ideas wiki, so new OSes don't have to re-invent the wheel and re-innovate.

RE: screens

Screens were a nice concept. But unfortunatly hardware dependant.
Few PC graphic chipsets supports interupt notify when a line has been outputted to the display.
If no notify, then it will require lots of polling.
