Hi,

From time to time I search for WiOS over the internet, but I never found anything more than the Manual.

Does anyone has WiOS installed ?
Does anyone has the installer ?

Thanks.

The WayBackMachine deserves a big thank ya for many reasons, especially for this.
I know from various sources that the author of WiOS is visiting this forum from time to time. :)

WiOS followed a different attempt then SymbOS, but of courseyou are right, it is history.

If you like a copy of WiOS please send me a PM. As you could download it in the past from the sunrise website i think it is okay if i give you a copy.

It was really to slow to be useful, even on turbo r. API wise it was solid, but besides the file manager and a clock made by Eric Maas there where no applications for it. Also it used cooperative multitasking and not preemptive multitasking ( little bit like win 3.11 versus win 95. I do still have the programmers guide for it .
