Editorial Amazing is the recent interest in full, live, operating systems that can fit on a 50 MB CD-ROM. It's totally astounding that they can cram so much onto such a tiny disk. But wait.. let's run back to the days of old.. back to say 1988.

BeOS. An OS with all the features you could ask for in 1999 that was more responsive than present-day OSes on hardware 1/3 as powerful. GoBeProductive is a nice office suite that's tiny compared to Office and OO and contains some features they don't have. I'm still waiting for the day when something new comes close to BeOS' elegance and user-friendliness.
