Hi All,

I created a small performance tool to compare our home computers using SymbOS.

Is there someone who can test this program in SymbOS on a Enterprise?

And after that can send me a picture of the general score and a picture of the detailed score?
It would be cool if it could be tested on a normal Enterprise and one with a turbo mode!

I hope someone can test it as my ENTERPRISE is currently dead and not working :(

Why the difference in disk access on stock Enterprise?

Does Prodatron run SymbOS from Ramdisk?

Hi Guys, I am planning to release SymbOS 3.0 soon in May, so it's time to remove the last issues for the Enterprise as well!
The two important things on my ToDo list regarding the EP are currently these ones:
- fix the FDC timing issues
- add full support for the EnterMice
I don't remember about any other EP-related critical bugs, but maybe I missed something?

Not a really bug:
Don't use FFh segment on expanded machine, then will be possible exit to Enterprise system via Shut down menu, and later also possible start Enterprise programs from SymbOS.

Thanks for the hint, Zozo!
I am afraid that it doesn't make sense to add this to the "usual" version of SymbOS (which also works on 128K machines), as it requires several changes in the kernel.
But there is still the plan to have the "expanded" EP version of SymbOS after the 3.0 release, which only runs on expanded machines (192K or more) and uses a higher screen resolution. This would always keep the #FF segment free for EXOS.

Ahhh ... so this is the reason behind the smaller screen than possible ...

Fullscreen will be cool !

That can convert SymbOS in a full front-end for the Enterprise.... a wonderful dream.

Maybe a bit too much to worth, but even with little memory, some can save the state of system segment to SD card :) just after the loader would pass the control to SymbOS (which does direct access anyway for the HW), and the shutdown function can restore it. I am not sure if it's a sane idea though ...

Or if you have enough RAM and using segment 0xFF is cannot be avoided there easily either, at least some can save the segment content to another segment (which has a more "comfortable" position among segments for the SymbOS kernel) which can be restored from there before exit.
