If you think that's cool, you need to check out what they are doing with QNX:

QNX is a very small micro-kernel OS that has the look of Windows 95, has
builtin TCP/IP networking, a notepad, a few other little doodads, and to
top it off, a fully functional HTML 3.2 compliant web browser. Also
supports graphics modes up to 1024x768 in millions of colors.

Okay, not amazing enough for you already? How about if I told you it all
ran off a 1.44mb floppy disk? Hmmmm? :)

Everyone owes to themselves to go grab this FREE (yes, FREE) OS and try it
for themselves.
