Speed & Stability
Millenium OS is very fast, it would run well even on a 286. It's also pretty stable, I only got it to crash by trying to open the calculator.
There aren't any entertainment applications included.
There are a couple of applications included for dealing with disks, a calculator that I couldn't get to work, and some other basic applications.
There are file associations defined in the control panel. I'm not sure what they are for, but they are a start.

M-OS is a small download and includes some documentation.
Some windows are dragable, but not all of them.
M-OS has a pretty good launcher, if you know the full address of the application you want to add a shortcut to then you can add one using a nice GUI interface.
There is an extensive control panel and in it you can set things like custom background colors and multiple desktop profiles.
It's strange to see M-OS before Todd Suess took over, the original OS was much more bare and didn't have many applications. It was a great desktop launcher for it's time, however. These days Costa has most of the same functionality and has a smoother UI.
