Syllable, AtheOS Norwegian ex-Amiga coder Kurt Skauen started designing & writing AtheOS in 1996. Until late 1999, AtheOS (a name derived from the Greek Goddess Athena) used to be called AltOS. AtheOS has even seen complete rewrites along the years, and today is on version 0.3.7. Come with me and see what AtheOS has to offer today to you. All your questions answered and we also include five new screenshots.

>[/i]Hmm, and win2000 takes 4 boot disks to install.[/i]

You have misanderstood. To install AtheOS, you need 3 bootable floppies, *PLUS* a 20 MB tarball which has to reside in a FAT partition. If you don't have a FAT partition, you have to put that tarball spawned across 12-13 floppy disks. So, if you don't have a FAT partition around, you will need almost 16 floppy disks to install AtheOS.
