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.

One thing to add to Amiga: the GUI and command-line interface were smoothly integrated in the system. This is unlike Windows, where one couldn't launch windows programs from the command-line (can they now?

You certainly can in XP and while it's not something I can say I've ever done often, I seem to recall it's always worked the times I have tried it - which version are you thinking of ?
