Polls / Re: Compatibility with OS/2

I hope people, who WERE employees in the 90s, will come forward from wherever they are now
Some of them are connected with Arca Noae.

When I discovered a bug in Panorama we are (with Alex G who's working on OS4 kernel) contacted Lewis Rosenthal, and he asked one of ex-IBM employees about possible effects of the bug (it was annoying bug with boot time crashes in OS4 and colored snow on the screen in eCS 2.x). Then someone (who? I don't know) fixed it.

Both ArcaOS and OS4 kernels works fine. Everything fine, after all. I would like to see both kernels in one installation. But, of course, nobody will deliver them or fix old software for free.

Okay.  If I don't hear from anybody else who's able to help me, I will try to contact someone at IBM directly.
There are no employees in IBM who remember the 90s.
According to a report by Russian-speaking IBM employee from the forum, "IBM today is a conglomerate of companies acquired in Silicon Valley and all around the globe".
So it's better to buy the latest OS version from Arca Noae and concentrate one's efforts on free software.
And, of course, they will not sell nor open anything to a random person (including you and me).

Then Intel will completely drop BIOS support on their motherboards and CPUs.

At first, it didn't work with OS/4. According to AlexT, somebody missed an initialization of a global variable, that was a pointer, so, because kernel allows device driver to access all of the memory, Panorama in eCS 2.2-beta sometimes sended data to random address.

Then AlexT sent patched version to me, and then — to Arca Noae.

A snow on the screen completely gone.

There were broken pointers in Panorama, with snow on the screen etc.
I use patched driver but want to upgrade to ArcaOS as soon as possible.

It's widely known that they will never release it as open source.

IMHO it was marketing. Twice upon a time, someone's wanted to switch users from WinXP to Win7.

Muen separation kernel updated to version 0.8
According to their website, Muen is a:
Minimal SK for the Intel x86/64 architecture written in SPARK 2014
And SPARK is an extension to Ada programming language. There are brief introduction to it:

It seems to be completely useless for common tasks. But... somewhere... 8)

I like Classical Rexx but not Object-Oriented.
The future is Functional Programming anyway.

KEERET   KEEENTRY KernInvokeAtEachCpu(RendCallBack_t CallBack,void *arg,uint32_t flags);
KEERET   KEEENTRY KernInvokeAtSpecificCpu(RendCallBack_t CallBack,void *arg,uint32_t CPUnum);

I would like to see names like:

KEERET   KEEENTRY KernRegisterCallback(RendCallBack_t CallBack, void *arg, uint32_t flags, uint32_t CPUnum);

Guess why.

Sure it's a broken MPTable somewhere in BIOS.
