We don't usually link to articles on other websites in the Prestwood eMag, but this month I couldn't resist...

10 Operating Systems the World Left Behind 
By Matt Lake, Computerworld
Matt takes you on a tour of operating sytems over the last 40 years including dead, dying, and under-used operating systems. I loved Matt's article. It brought back many memories.

My personal experience started with Commodore computers (C64 and C128) so I started on Commodore Basic 2.0, CP/M, and GEOS. From there I moved to the Amiga, NeXT, and Macintoshes finally giving in to Bill Gates when I was hired at Borland International.

If you're a long-time computer user, you'll enjoy Matt's article. If you're relatively new, Matt's article serves as a wonderful overview.
