OSNews, Generic OSes "This post is about the desktop operating systems that fly under the radar of most people. We are definitely not talking about Windows, Mac OS X or Linux, or even BSD or Solaris. There are much less mainstream options out there for the OS-curious." Though the article doesn't go into much detail about the OSes, it is a good round up of some of the interesting candidates.

I've tried ReactOS, Syllable, Sky, and a few others. I haven't been able to get them to run on the bare hardware. I just have very generic devices, nothing exotic they shouldn't handle. One of the awesome things about Beos 5 was it just worked on my computer. It even supported my tv card, and just ran my system better than windows or linux.

Did you report the problems to the developers? We need to know if you run into problems otherwise we'll never be able to fix the bugs you are encountering.
