The new OS for several 8-bit systems?


Several months ago I received an e-mail from RTDOS asking if I was interested in joining a discussion group about a new multi platform operating system for 8-bit computers.

I looked at the chat discussions early on but have not been involved lately. The concept would be to create an OS that will work on the Atari XL/XE as well as the Commodore, Apple and TI.

A webring was started but few sites have linked to it at this time.

For those in the Atari world that would like to look into these discussions these links below will get you there. This might really be something to allow a kind of “Linux” style OS for all 8-bit systems to share.

As we all see the world of the 8-bit systems still lives on with various enhancements as time goes on.

See you next month in the world of Atari….
