There's Plan 9 From Bell Labs, but I've never used it.

Of course there's DOS, but it's no longer developed, I think (but their's FreeDOS). Mac OSX has been successfully installed on Intel-based PC's (but you need a special patch and it's against the Mac OSX EULA.) GNU HURD, I think, is available though most people use GNU/Linux as their kernel rahter than HURD. MorphOS. Lots of 'em, really.
