Some time ago, I remember reading about an older operating system - and now I can't remember the name or where I found it. I believe I stumbled onto it from a link when I was exploring the Hurd/Mach alternatives to Linux. A key item was that at a some show, possibly Comdex, the booth for this operating system was located near Novell's, and the reps would take turns gleefully kicking the power cord of the socket, the plugging it back in and having the system come back almost instantaneously - since it saved its state continuously to disk. The Novell people were - a trifle upset.

Does anyone have any idea about what this operating system was/is or have a link I can visit?

I believe this may be Eros - http://www.eros-os.org/ .

There was a recent slashdot article about its successor, Coyotos -

That was it! Thank you.
