    UNIX
    freeBSD
    Mac OS X
    DOS (several flavors)
    Novell

    that's all the common ones I can think of (aside from the many flavors of M$ Windows and Linux) at the moment :shrug:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    BeOS can still be found, but I don't think it is being supported much anymore. :(

    I wouldn't consider stuff like SymbianOS, PalmOS, or WindowsCE a normal operating system, in the sense that you can't really put them on a desktop or a laptop and use them as your main operating system.

    Another operating system: IBM's OS/2 Warp

    Who said anything about desktop OSes? Novell is definitely not a desktop OS, but it's still here. :)

    Lindows is just Linux with "eye-candy" and a few tweaks mate :)

    As far I know there is NO Mac OS running on x86 it's always been on Motorola or IBM PPC chips.

    Some time in the 90's there was a rumor and a friend of a friend of a former-roomate..etc... said that he had a copy of OS 7 that ran on 486.

    Well, if I'm wrong please correct be, but I'm and 99.9999- % sure I'm right.

    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?
