TOS definition operating system
's Tape Operating System
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
(in later versions). TOS was designed to run Atari's version of the GEM GUI
There is some argument as to what TOS stands for, the main candidates being "Tramiel Operating System" (named after Atari's head at the time) or simply "The Operating System".
