In the words of the web site;
MikeOS is a 16-bit operating system for x86 PCs, written in assembly language, which boots from a floppy disk or CD-ROM. It features a text-based dialog-driven user interface, a command-line, support for FAT12 (DOS) floppies and PC speaker sound. It can load external programs and has over 30 system calls. Basic DOS .COM program support is also included.It isn't supposed to be a "general purpose" operating system. Rather, it is a teaching tool with basic functionalities. I think it is cool. It has a good reputation, too. I've downloaded a copy to fool with here at some point in the future.
I think some of you might like this.

I'm only surprised that a US ISP hasn't done this yet (that I know of). We usually have the lead in this kind of baloney.

1) This is one of those “Covers it all sites”, just plain interesting reading on world oddities covering nature, people, technologies, media, and much more actually fifty-seven different subjects, a great read. http://2spare.com/
2) Next up another car of the future, but not to distant you can order one today. This car looks more like an airplane than a car; in fact, its name Aptera means wingless flight in Greek. Very cool car either all electric, or hybrid, 0 to 60 in ten seconds, 85 mph cruising speed, up to 300 MPG. http://www.aptera.com/
3) This is one of those above my pay grade sites, and I think a lot of this audience is familiar with it. But, it is new to me and I thought I should put it up just in case some of you may have missed it, and for those novice types, like me who may be listening. A device called the Bug, which is an open source modular, mobile device, kind of like a electronic Lego concept. A base unit which is a fully programmable and “hackable” Linux computer, equipped with a fast CPU, 128 MB Ram, built-in WiFi, rechargeable battery, USB, Ethernet, and a small LCD with button controls. Each Bug base houses four connections, for users to combine any assortment of BUG modules to create their individualized ultimate gadget. http://www.buglabs.net/products
SP1 is going to be interesting. It seems to me MS has concentrated on a different set of enhancements than I would have chosen, but then I don't have all the feedback they have to help me choose stuff.
Anyway; have a look. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. SP1 is not the simple security rollup we were told it would be at first. Far from it, in fact.
