AROS is the next best OS to use as it has a low memory footprint and can run on X86 systems:
If you want Windows try ReactOS:
OS/2 try OSFree:
BeOS try HaikuOS:
All are low memory OSes.
Will try the other two, I guess. Not holding my hopes up.
Can you elaborate? It's been fairly stable for me.
P.S. It's just Haiku, not HaikuOS
Never heard of AROS...
ReactOS is bloated by definition of replicating windows, isn't it? It probably uses less than main windows, but it is just my opinion that the 1990-1997 period preceded some of the real bloat added due to the massive Moore's law gains after that with the GHz races.
OS/2 ... seems obscure to me but I never used it. But NeXT and Beos had revolutionary capabilities, I think OS/2 was basically just preemptive multitasking for Windows. Is that right?
BeOS, which I've never used, is probably also a good starting spot. HaikuOS probably has more oomph behind it community wise.
It is very wrong assumption!
