I don't remember what "DOS" stands for but doesn't it mean something like a text-based OS? That's how I read it and want to remember it.

So *please* if anyone who says "AmigaDOS" (I've seen a few) reads this change it to AmigaOS!

AmigaOS has *allways* had a GUI.

"Disk Operating System"--so only a part of OS.

No, the OS itself is a DOS. Nearly all OS's are DOS - even diskless devices like PDA's emulate disks in flash or RAM so are DOS's. Example of a OS that wasn't a DOS were early micros that used tape. Even so, many of these, like the PET and C64 were upgradeable to DOS with the purchase of an external FDD.

btw - What happened to the rumour that Bill McEwen was going to turn up at the banquet? Is anyone from Ainc going? Why don't KMOS get Ray to put SOMETHING up on their site?
