GNU/Hurd - has been under development by Richard Stallman and his Free Software Foundation (FSF) since 1990.The core component, the Hurd (Hird of Unix-replacing daemons) kernel (i.e., the core of the operating system), is still not completed because of its very ambitious goal: to surpass Unix-like kernels in functionality, security and stability while remaining largely compatible with them.In spite of its very small size and relative simplicity, MS-DOS is one of the most successful operating systems that has been developed to date.Net BSD - a derivative of 4.3BSD and launched in 1993, as was the case with Free BSD.

The loyal user base was very disappointed when the company failed commercially, and thus several open source projects, including beunited.org, are under way that are aimed at recreating and updating (e.g., new video drivers) Be OS.Microsoft Windows encompasses two groups of operating systems (i.e., Windows 95/98/ME/CE and Windows NT/2000/XP) which resemble each other superficially and share compatibility with many of the same application programs but which have very different internal structures.MINIX - a small, open source UNIX clone that was first released in January 1987.Free BSD was begun in early 1993 based on 4.3BSD, and the first version, 1.0, was released in December of that year.Free DOS - begun in 1994 by Jim Hall with the goal of becoming a complete, free and fully MS-DOS compatible operating system for x86 (i.e., Intel-compatible) CPUs (i.e., central processing units).
