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.

Come to tink of it: I would LOVE a sleek looking computer with a Tux on it and a keyboard & mouse in the same style with penguins on them.

Without the Microsoft Windows tax it should be cheaper than other PCs.

The laptops look great, they just need to add a Tux.

However the desktops look like they bought some generic cases.

A number of years ago I bought some Tux case badges and it did give me a nice feeling have them on my PCs.
