It was a little demo floppy released by the QNX folks that contained a demo copy of QNX complete with a full GUI desktop (Photon?), networking, a browser, and a bunch of other basic tools. Rather cool, I thought.

I do. It's amazing what the people working on QNX have been able to do with it.

Yup. That was prtty amazing. I remember at the time that Be, Inc. had come up with something similar, just before they announced their focus-shift to internet appliances.

The QNX demo was awesome. I think I still have an old floppy with a copy on it; don't have a computer with a floppy anymore, ironically.
