Are you talking about that QNX enviroment that fit on just a 1.44MB floppy? That was like 10 years ago wasn't it?

I have to admit. That thing was freaking AWESOME! It has a browser, networking, a GUI, start bar, and a few little tools/utilities that fit on FLOPPY! A freaking 1.44MB FLOPPY! Now-a-days you can't fit shit, or apple-butter, on a damn 1.44MB floppy.

Yep, that thing was neat. Does QNX still do stuff like that? I guess these days people are impressed if they get the same kind of stuff to fit on a 32MB USB drive. Although, I bet QNX can do alot with 32MB, but I haven't looked at what they can do in almost a decade.
