PedroM 68k OS Released
Posted by Michael on 10 December 2003, 23:21 GMT

Patrick Pelissier, author of PreOS and other fine 68k programs, has written the first third-party operating system for the 68k calcs. The open-source PedroM looks like a Unix shell, has task switching and a much smaller size (only 192 KB). It is designed to be compatible with the AMS 1.xx series.

In order to include this OS in our archives, we have added categories for TI-89 Operating Systems, TI-92 Plus Operating Systems, and Voyage 200 Operating Systems.

Morgan has also been fixing up the TI-83 Plus Flash directory into subcategories of games, science, math, et cetera. New submissions should no longer go into the general Flash category but rather one of these new subcategories.

Update (Michael): We are currently being Slashdotted, but holding up just fine because HTTP requests are load-balanced among our Beowulf cluster of 2000 TI-85s. Bring it on!

I loaded this up into VTI, fiddled with it, and must say that I am absolutely amazed. I have no doubt that Patrick Pelissier's name will soon become as well-known as that of Thomas Nussbaumer, Rusty Wagner and the like.

How come chasm 2 was not in the flash programs for Ti-83+/SE and was it deleted and why?

I just looked at it and couldn't find it either. Are you the author? If so just send in an update of the old one. Not really any point in having an old version on the site unless it is a shell. Shouldn't do any harm since it was release not to long ago.

well, so did Kevin K. Why was he not mentioned? Not to mention the amount of tsr's he has written. I think that is very notable.

This is really cool! too bad you said there were limitations on the calc for stable multitaksing. :(

I was just wondering, is it legal to use this with vti if you don't own any of the 68k calcs?

     11 December 2003, 17:22 GMT

Re: Re: PedroM 68k OS Released

No. Nor is it illegal to use the REAL 89 OS on the VTI. that is because TI offers the roms for free. Because there is no purchace involved, you are not steaing. However, it is illegal to have an 86 or 83+ rom (without calc), because they have to come from the calc.

On the site to get the ROM from ti.com, I believe you have to agree to some liscense that says that you DO have to own the calc to get the ROM...you could say you do, but that would be lying, and thus you would be going against the liscense, and thus doing something illegal...I think...

Your correct. You have to own the calc to use any of the OSs legally on VTI.

The license reads "In addition to the copy resident on your calculator, you may keep a copy on your computer for backup / archive purposes.". I take this to mean that the computer file can be used for backup/archive purposes ONLY. That excludes using it with an emulator, e.g., VTI.

IANAL, though.

Poo... I didn't read the original post - "is it legal to use this [PedroM] with vti...?".

I would say it is legal to use the PedroM OS on vti, as it's none of TI's copyrighted material, and TI cannot claim (I really hope) that vti itself infringes on TI's copyrights, patents, or trademarks (or trade secrets, for that matter).

They can claim anything. This website exists out of the charity of TI. They could have shut this site down years ago.

Yes, this doesn't use any TI code, and it is released under the GPL so you can run PedroM on whatever hardware you want. Assuming it understands 68k assembly, that is. :-)
