Well I would be forced to stay on BeOS got to love it... and YES I know it's not flawless (that's the least you could say, having in mind that they currently have no ported, fast, webbrowser). but anyway, I love it beacuse of it's user friendlyness and speed, and don't forget nostalgic value.

Yeah...it was first called Sorcerer Linux...but there was a disagreement and a fork. One of the forks is now called Source Mage GNU/Linux (another is Lunar Linux, i think). The original Sorcerer Linux is alive again though, but they changed the license from GPL to SPL (their own license?) which (i believe) would prevent another fork from happening.
