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.

BTW, I don't think QNX was the first hard RTOS, although I couldn't for the life of me say what was. In any case, "hard RTOS" isn't a "lost" technology, since lots of past & current OS's have used it and continue to use it. It's just an ignored technology.
