OS People Rarely Know

Speaking of operating systems, some computer users now, especially the millennial generation born after 2000, can only be known to know Windows, MacOS, and Linux for desktop and notebook computer platforms, plus Android and iOS for smartphone platforms. This is reasonable considering that only the operating system mentioned above is practically on the market today.

But actually, in the past there were quite a number of operating systems in circulation and made a significant contribution to the development of the current operating system. Some of them are still circulating today, but are not popular or are only used in certain circles. On the other hand, sometimes a new operating system is born, but apparently has not succeeded in breaking down the existence of an established operating system.

Well, we will present a number of non-mainstream operating systems for the current size, operating systems that have been victorious in their time to operating systems that you might not know existed.

1. DOS

Windows operating system users are most likely to have used DOS. But some may not realize it. If you have used Command Prompt on Windows, it means that you have actually "tasted" DOS.

2. BeOS

BeOS is an operating system designed with multimedia superiority, created in 1991 by Be Inc. Initially, the BeOS operating system was developed only for BeBox computers, but was finally available for IBM PCs and compatible. The BeBox computer itself was not accepted by the market and in 1997 was taken over by Apple to "merge" into the Macintosh. Since then, Be Inc. decided to concentrate on software only, especially the BeOS operating system.

3. Lindows

The presence of free open source Linux is apparently not able to stem, both popularity and piracy, Windows. One of the reasons is perhaps the user friendly nature of Windows that Linux cannot adapt.

Departing from the problem, Michael Robertson in 2001 founded Lindows Inc. The aim is to create a Linux-based operating system, but is able to run various major applications that are on Windows. Finally LindowsOS or often called Lindows is created. Lindows was developed based on Debian.

4. OS/2

Microsoft and IBM, two technology giants who once mastered the world of information technology in the 1980s, have worked together in developing an operating system, namely OS / 2. Predictably, OS stands for Operating System. So named because OS / 2 is a development of PS / 2 that had been developed by IBM. PS stands for Personal System. In the end, Microsoft quit this collaboration and IBM developed OS / 2 alone.

5. True OS

Security issues and viruses are often a problem for computer users. That is what later became the rationale for TrueOS developers to create a truly safe operating system. TrueOS is a "manifestation" of PC-BSD, an operating system that is well known for its high level of security.

One medium for the spread of viruses is the process of exchanging data via USB. TrueOS beautifully blocks it using GELI full disk encryption and PersonaCrypt. Both allow making portable but encrypted removable home directories.

Some other names

There are still a number of other operating systems that actually have surfaced and are still waiting for time to become popular, or they may be reluctant to die. Just call Google Chromium OS which is designed to be an operating system that focuses on internet activities.

Most recently, there is a relatively new operating system, namely Endless OS. Endless OS is designed to be easy to use so that all family members can use it. In addition, Endless OS can also be used relatively when not connected to the internet thanks to the rich offline content available on the operating system.
