TI-89 Titanium Compatibility Improves
Posted by Michael on 22 August 2004, 03:04 GMT

Since the release of the 89 Titanium, there have been many reports of incompatibilities with existing assembly programs. Hopefully some of these will be now alleviated, as a number of key fixes have been released. Kevin Kofler's 89 homepage contains links to many programs that operate properly on the Titanium, including his own HW3Patch that will patch the AMS so as to allow certain types of programs to function correctly. For kernel aficionados, Iceberg v1.00 is a port of PreOS v0.67 to the Titanium.

Greg Dietsche has also uploaded Titanium compatible versions of KerNO (the anti-kernel 'kernel') and some games: Insane Game, ZTetris, Tron, and Dr. Mario.

... Backwards compatability bad?

Look what it's done to Microsoft Windows: A slow, buggy, bloated, insecure product due to Microsoft's insistance on backwards compatability. Of course, security isn't important on a calculator, but it is important that bloat be prevented. We all horde every last byte of RAM, right? I don't really know if official support is sufficient for all programs, not having written any assembly, but I am inclined to suggest that programs written with unsupported features simply be ignored by TI kernel/assmebler writters.

Backwards compatability good++

People have older programs that they need to use and if they don't work they get angry. If the OS is huge, so what? Use removable media. If you make an OS that works only for people who are buying a version of it for the first time, nobody uses it.
