In addition to the device drivers included with OS/2
Warp 4, ArcaOS includes a variety of drivers

Throw Back ‐ 1990'sdeveloped by Arca Noae, and various third parties:

Network adapters are supported either with Arca
Noae's MultiMac[13] technology, which employs
FreeBSD driver code, or a selection of GenMAC[14]
drivers. Support for wireless networking is somewhat
limited, though MultiMac support for additional
chipsets is planned for future releases of ArcaOS.[15]
ArcaOS replaces the 16‐bit IBM OS/2 USB driver with
a new 32‐bit driver capable of supporting USB 2.0
and USB 3.0 controllers.[16][17]
Audio support utilizes the Uniaud[18] generic audio
driver, now maintained by Arca Noae. Uniaud is
based on the ALSA framework from the Linux kernel.
In addition, a selection of device‐specific drivers are
included with ArcaOS. A new audio driver is planned
for future releases of ArcaOS, based on FreeBSD
audio drivers.[15]
Video support is provided by Panorama[19] generic
unaccelerated VESA driver, or SNAP[20] accelerated
video driver. Features such as acceleration and multi‐
head are supported for a limited number of graphics
chipsets. Support for these features in additional
chipsets, such as the Intel HD series, is planned.[15]
Storage drivers are available for IDE, AHCI, NVMe
and a number of SCSI adapters.[21][22]
Support for printers is provided by the eCups project,
which is based on the open source CUPS printing
system for Unix.[23]

IBM PS/2 it ‐ A Look Back at the PS/2

The Personal System/2 or PS/2 is IBM's third generation of personal computers. Released in
1987, it officially replaced the IBM PC, XT, AT, and PC Convertible in IBM's lineup. Many of
the PS/2's innovations, such as the 16550 UART (serial port), 1440 KB 3.5‐inch floppy disk
format, Model M keyboard layout, 72‐pin SIMMs, the PS/2 port, and the VGA video
standard, went on to become standards in the broader PC market.[2][3]

The PS/2 line was created by IBM partly in an attempt to recapture control of the PC
market by introducing the advanced yet proprietary Micro Channel architecture (MCA) on
higher‐end models. These models were in the strange position of being incompatible with
the IBM‐compatible hardware standards previously established by IBM and adopted in the
PC industry. However IBM's initial PS/2 computers were popular with target market
corporate buyers, and by September 1988 IBM reported that it had sold 3 million PS/2
machines. This was only 18 months after the new range had been introduced.

Most major PC manufacturers balked at IBM's licensing terms for MCA‐compatible
hardware, particularly the per‐machine royalties. In 1992, Macworld stated that "IBM lost
control of its own market and became a minor player with its own technology."[4]

The OS/2 operating system was announced at the same time as the PS/2 line and was
intended to be the primary operating system for models with Intel 80286 or later processors.
However, at the time of the first shipments, only IBM PC DOS 3.3 was available. OS/2 1.0
(text‐mode only) and Microsoft's Windows 2.0 became available several months later. IBM
also released AIX PS/2, a UNIX operating system for PS/2 models with Intel 386 or later
processors. Cont ........................

Indepth Review of OS/2 and
Windows 10 / 11 ‐ GUI

By Author Justin Coleman

Analyst

Welcome to my review of why
OS/2 is still current in the
Windows era and why this OS
has never been just swept under
the carpet. Why did it not die
and become a peace of history.
Look at the present and future
of OS/2 now called ArcaOS

OS/2 had Many see windows as a forward thinking OS
one of the and all the bells as whistles that come with
most the new inferface but has it ever involved?
advanced
Object Looking back and compare witht the, lets say
Orentated Windows 98 we realy do not see a hugh
GUI of all change in the basic gui style, yes it looks
time ? cleaner but has it changed
and in my option it has not.
We still stuck witht he start
menu and the classic list
of apps still like windows 95.

The object ortentated desktop still commands attention to day and
still stands up to the day to day use. We have features such as
Shadow Shortcuts, Shortcuts that follow the file, Templates,
Customised windows, in fact it go well beyond what OS GUI can do
today. So why did it not cross over to windows? My
option is that the licance still holds with IBM over the
GUI but please comment if this is incorrect. But we
still have all these fetures today due to ArcaOS
bringing OS/2 into the 2021. cont ...

Looking
at
ArcaOS
today in
2021

While still remaining the core of OS/2 from the Warp era we see a lovely
presented GUI. Now with support for full colur and a revamp icon set. Arca OS
still have the option to revert back to a OS/2 Warp 4 style interface but all the
same features are under the hood.

Virtual desktop are loaded straight
after starting the OS and a revamp
menu bar. This I think in my option is
hit and miss but its still easy to use and
find what you need. All of the options are there with
the right mouse click and you get a tab notebook style
options to customise you folder or desktop.

ArcaOS is on version 5 whats next? the future?

Its never going to be a 64bit OS due
to the codebase still held tight by IBM
but regarding the interface well in my
option its going to have to change.
Even though OS/2 users poke sticks at
Windows the latest version looks nice
and to most people using PCs
everyday, the users this is what
matters. Since we do not have to
worry about graphics, memory, cpu
limitations these day. Is REXX going to
stand up to the challange or is this too
muct?. Shouid it have a Dark Mode
now? Options? Cont ...

OS/2 Magazine 2021

Big thank you to the ArcaOS Team

In the end we must give a big thank you to the ArcaOS Team for keeping the
great OS current and been able to install on modern hardware. In the pipeline
we see a future of UFEI support and a even better installer.

So from me the author keep up the good work and thanks for keeping OS/2
alive.
