800 operating systems

The ArchiveOS.org service is online and active over 5 years now, and shares work of many developers of open source and/or freeware distributions/operating systems, to never forget about them.

We already reached a number of 800 operating systems of Linux, BSD, Solaris, DOS and other, independent developed, and we will be added next ones as long as possible.

Most collected operating systems is not active, but there a few still active or reactivated after a time of quiet.

Don’t forget to send a small tip to keep the project alive 🙂

Thank all of you for the last 5 years.

500 Distros at ArchiveOS

The ArchiveOS.org service is active almost 3 years, which archives and shares work of many developers of open source and/or freeware distributions/operating systems, to never forget about them.

We have already collected 500 different operating systems of Linux, BSD, Solaris, DOS and other, independent developed, and we will be added next ones as long as possible.

Most collected operating systems is not active, but there a few still active what make some guys surprised.

Why a few of active operating systems are listed at ArchiveOS?
1. They have been added due to didactic purpose
2. They have been added dut to developers request
3. They are back to life and there is on reason to remove

As always, all of them are shared for you for free, just explore, test them and have fun.

Don’t forget to send a small tip to keep the project alive 🙂

Thank all of you for the last 3 years.

300

A few days ago the ArchiveOS.org data base reached the number of 300 operating systems.

The biggest category of the operating systems in our data base is still Linux, but other categories such as *BSD, DOS, Solaris and independent still having new entries.

Anyway, if you have an interesting, old or out of date operating system, or you know a hosting server where it can be downloaded – let me know , please so I will add it to the ArchiveOS.org base soon.

If you like the job is already done, and would like to support it – simply send a tip via PayPal.

Inspired by the fictional artificial intelligence GLaDOS from Valve’s Portal video game series, this operating system is a fully functional replica of the operating system from the games based on the FreeDOS operating system.

GLaDOS is based on FreeDOS 1.0, a free and open-source operating system developed as a replacement for Microsoft DOS (MS-DOS), and both FreeDOS and GLaDOS can run programs intended for MS-DOS. Popular programs such as Fallout 1, Microsoft Word, Doom, Lotus 1-2-3, and more run flawlessly under GLaDOS without emulation.

Features:
– Drivers for Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device
– 4DOS command line for improved command-line functionality
– XCDROM and SHSUCDX to add support for CD drives
– Remote control support for Aperture Science Sentry Turrets
– DOSLFN 0.41 to add Windows Long File Name support
– CuteMouse 2.1 Beta 4 for programs that require mouse

GLaDOS is capable of running on any Intel 80386 CPU (or higher) PC with 512KB of RAM, and is available as a bootable floppy image or a bootable CD.

The project developer was Corbin Davenport.

200

The ArchiveOS.org data base grows up systematically in the last few months time, and got the number of 200 operating systems now.

The biggest category which features the biggest number of open-source and free operating systems is Linux by now. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t search the web looking for *BSD, DOS, Solaris and others, independent operating systems. I do, and I will be doing it as long as I could.

Anyway, if you have an interesting, old or out of date operating system, or you know a hosting server where it can be downloaded – let me know , please so I will add it to the ArchiveOS.org base soon.
