There are so many different operating systems out there, but so few challenges that counts all of the commercial OS’s. Most of the computer and gadget magazines ignores A-EON AmigaOS 4.1 and MorphOS Team MorphOS 3.7 operating systems which are fully commercial operating systems. Not on x86 platform, but they are available for PowerPC CPU systems.

Can these tiny commercial OS’es have any chances against Apples OSX 10.10.1 and Microsoft Windows 8.1. I’ve also brought Gentoo Linux to this list as its the most commercial alike Linux version.
