operating system /toss/
2. The operating system of the Atari ST range of
computers. This range included the 512ST, 1040ST and the F,
FM and E variations (e.g.1040STE). Later, 32-bit machines
(TT, Falcon030 and MegaSTE) were developed using a new version
of TOS, called MultiTOS which was based on MinT.
TOS went through several revisions starting initially as a
derivative of CP/M, but developing into a remarkably
complete and flexible operating system. Features include: a
flat memory model, MS-DOS-compatible disk format and
support for MIDI and SCSI (in later versions). TOS was
designed to run Atari's version of the GEM GUI.
