The 5 Useful (And Unknown) Operating Systems You Probably Never Heard Of

Don't Forget to participate in a contest where you can win custom logo design package from LogoDesignBundle.


This is one of the very best list of its kind where you can find out of the box operating systems that you probably never heard of and these would be great enough to bookmark or just for knowledge. I hope everyone of you will like this list, you can try these whether you are an office worker, a manager, a supervisor, a student, a home user, etc. These are really amazing in respect to their features. This is the list of Five Operating Systems You Probably Never Heard Of. Just take a look at them and share your thought’s here.


Jolicloud is a new operating system for netbooks. The OS provides a beautiful interface, an application directory and a set of social features that make it easy and fun to use.


ReactOSis a free, modern operating system based on the design of Windows XP/2003. Written completely from scratch, it aims to follow the Windows-NT architecture designed by Microsoft from the hardware level right through to the application level. This is not a Linux based system, and shares none of the unix architecture.


PC-BSD is a complete desktop operating system, which has been designed with the “casual” computer user in mind. It offers the stability and security that only a BSD-based operating system can bring, while at the same time providing a comfortable user experience, allowing you to get the most out of your computing time. With PC-BSD you can spend less time working to fix viruses or spyware and instead have the computer work for you.


openSUSE is a free and Linux-based operating system for your PC, Laptop or Server. You can surf the web, manage your e-mails and photos, do office work, play videos or music and have a lot of fun.


gOS turns your computer into a desktop full of your favorite widgets, fresh with live, personalized content just for you. Technically gOS is a cut down version of ubuntu 7.10 desktop, who’s focus is online applications like gmail, google news, google maps, youTube, mebo and many more.

- I already try ReactOS.
- I used SuSE several years on my desktop at home, and I try OpenSuSE.
- I try gOS :

- I already boot a BSD CD … ;-)

No, I know JoliCloud, but I not yet try it ;-)

It would have been nicer if the author had written that ReactOS is still in alpha.

Read . It is an excellent website which of course list trends in operating systems, but as of recent (post 2004) has followed up on multiple more tech trends (including video, web, codecs, formats, etc).

OpenSuse isn’t exactly obscure!

Exactly my point as CMD.
A lot more people know of openSUSE than, maybe the other mentioned here. You really can’t assume that a large majority of your readers “probably haven’t heard of openSUSE”

openSUSE isn’t unknown operating system. Are you know that this OS is used as default operating system from government and many other institutions in Germany? :)

Great list: linux, ReactOS, linux-like, linux and linux. the only one that was vaguely interesting and that anyone not living under a rock wouldn’t have heard of was reactOS.

What about actually doing a bit of research? There are heaps of interesting OSes out there. How about
FreeDOS – used by a lot of hardware manafacturers for bootable firmware disks.
Aros – an open source version of the brilliant Amiga OS (Amiga is set to relaunch its hardware soon BTW)
Sylable Desktop, similar to amiga / unix
Haiku – an open source reworking of BeOS, another brilliant dinosaur OS
And there’s a gazillion others.

I haven’t heard all of them before, except opensuse
I think suse is the old player in OS market
