In honor of Chrome OS, here BusinessInsider has collected a nice selection of obscure old operating systems that basically died on the vine.
Take BeOS, for example. Be was one of the most amazing OSes I’d ever seen, especially in about 1995. Then there were real clinkers like Inferno and Arthur, OSes that tried valiantly to fill holes that weren’t there. Interestingly most of these still are in production somewhere, idling away waiting for the right time to become sentient and strike.
