MenuetOS sits in an interesting nexus between astonishing technical achievement and computerised work of art. The super-speedy, pre-emptive multitasking operating system is still, despite adding more driver support, more included applications, an improved GUI and digital TV support over the years, capable of fitting on a floppy disk (assuming you can find one).

MenuetOS is a technical marvel. Not only is it written entirely in assembly, it also shoves a fully capable multitasking operating system on a single floppy disk.

The wording could be a little misleading, so I just want to point out that you don't need a floppy disk to try MenuetOS.

If you'd like to try this (amazing) operating system in a live environment, it's incredibly easy to create a bootable CD by using the floppy disk image and the instructions on the website.

There's probably a way to install it without using a CD too. ;)
