OSNews, Generic OSes This is a painful article to write. I've been a longtime fan and user of what is affectionately known as PC/GEOS over the years. However, I'm fearing we're nearing the end of GEOS.

Again, no offense taken and more important, this is exactly the commentary I was hoping for as my primary reason for writing the article was to get objective, third party comments from a fresh audience, versus the tired old critics, and defensive corporate replies shared on the GEOS-Talk boards.

In another post a few minutes ago I wondered allowed whether it didn't make more sense to take advantage of the advances in Linux, drivers, modern programming languages, etc. to re-create the PC/GEOS experience and maybe like you suggest, this may be the only practical way to extend the GEOS legacy moving forward.

Thanks for the thoughtful commentary. And when the guys from GEOS-Talk catch wind of my article here, what I've said probably isn't going to make any friends either!
