Intel Management Engine

Isn’t that just MINIX?

I think it is slightly modified, but yeah I think it is basically Minix.

So is Minix one of the most popular OSes in the world?

Linux is not an OS, it’s the kernel.

Hehehehehehehehe.

Hehe, I wanted to add GNU/, but then I though someone will do it for me. Cheers.

Edit: I’m also waiting for emacs.

What do you mean ? Emacs has been a respectable OS since years. Though I am not so keen on recent developments around it.

Emacs has been a respectable OS since years.

Yeah, they still lack a decent editor though.

Plus, why is it systemE, not systemM, or rather systemM{50}? That’s a major flaw in design.

I meant as a new bullet, not Gnu/Linux#emacs.

If you do not love TempleOS, you are not a true lover of OSes.

I can’t. I do not deserve to use TempleOS.

When I installed BeOS on my laptop in the late 90s it was a revelation, a glimpse of what the future of computing could be. A cleanly designed OS without any of the bloat of traditional OSes. Looking at how it turned out just makes me so sad. It’s like a top notch ace in school that took a few bad life decisions and ended up in a dead end job. So much promise squandered…
