the Amiga Operating System was designed so that people can use their Amiga computers.

Before the Amiga operating system, there were no technical problems to solve!

@simz

hello there,

Welcome to the EAB, i am sure you will like it here. when you get done with you assignments theres plenty of mischief to get upto.

Now its an interesting question you raise there. as Originally the Amiga operating system was going to be CAOS (Commodore Amiga OS) this had many features that not even mainframes would have for years to come, including resource tagging and IO block controlls.

unfortunately this was not completed in time for a launch, so CBM's idea was to commission a version of TripOS for the amiga computer. this address a lot of the problems that CAOS didn't have time to solve, such like integration, however was indeed, woefully a lesser OS because of it...

I will post a link about of on this... bare with me...

[edit]

heres a link to a couple of really interesting articles. http://arstechnica.com/articles/cult...dore-years.ars

I hope its of some use, good luck with your assignments, and look forward to reading some of your posts when you get done

Unlike most other OS available at the time (MSDOS (PC), TOS (Atari), System7 (Mac) ) the Amiga OS sported both a nice GUI and proper multitasking.

As keropi said above, the Amiga OS was not really created to solve a problem - it was created to use on this excellent new range of computers. Had there not been so many management boobs it could have taken over the world

The boobs weren't the problem... the cocks that went up because of them boobs, was :P

Hence the Amiga term "CockUp" :P

I would take issue with your assumption that it was designed to solve a problem. I think it was designed to advance the capabiliities of the home computer. Although I suppose you could call the accepted capabilities of the home computer in the early eighties as a kind of "problem".

Have a look here:

It was created to solve the technical problem of the Amiga not having an OS!
