Other OS'


I wasn't sure where to put this. So I will ask here. I know the Linux family, the BSD family, and of course the gates one. I am using PC BSD, Ubuntu and XP right now. Anyways I was wondering if there is another OS that has a GUI installer and is good? If so could someone post the url to that website, if there is one, I would appreciate it? Thanks.

also, at least a couple of these probably have GUI installers:

Thanks. I didn't know they had an ISO for ReactOS yet. I am going to give that a try. I tried Solaris but I wasn't to fond of it. I think I may try it again later though and the link to the google list is great. I will do that the next time.

Anyone have any favorite OS' other then Linux/BSD/Solaris(Or Windows )

What about Zeta (http://www.yellowtab.com/)? It is a commercial OS, but it is a successor of the Be Operating System (BeOS).

There is also the old GEOS operating system,... which was essentially a GUI windowing envirnment sitting on top of DOS... It was pretty revolutionary for its time, but didn't get any 3rd party support.
