    I figured I would post this under the Linux thread... Some may know about this maybe old news but I think this OS is really cool. the entire OS fits on a floppy
    and boots from it. great for tinkering and anything else you may think of
    check it out MenuetOS

    There are many operating systems which fit on a floppy, most are called "LOAF"s (Linux On A Floppy) then there are things such as PicoBSD and so forth, I must agree though, Menuet seems the most feature rich and impressive :)

    Hehe, I remember trying MenuetOS on my desktop at some point. Needless to say, I was impressed at what they were able to do with less than 1.44MB
