You find our website by searching using search engines on-line and wonder. What is these small OS’es and why is Distrita supporting them? The simple answer is. Everything in the world should have been put on-line.

Here is a small introduction guide to some selected OS’s that we write about:

MorphOS:
A small light-weighted OS that is inspired by AmigaOS. Uses many GUI toolkits, sound drivers from AmigaOS. Supports AmigaOS 68, WarpUP and PowerUP programs including its own. Runs on PowerPC Mac’s which Apple have abandoned. Runs also on Pegasos and Efika PowerPC motherboards. There is a free version to download for trying, but limits 30 minutes of usage. To deactivate that, you need to register and get a personal licensed key. All apps for MorphOS can be found on Aminet, MorphOS-files.net or by searching the net.

SailfishOS:
A small mobile OS for Jolla Mobiles. This OS is a huge MeeGo upgrade, with many new features like Live Multitasking which other operating systems doesn’t have today. SailfishOS runs native programs, but also supports Android software which gives it the push it needs to have several apps. The native SailfishOS apps are good, but there are sport trackers and other software which you might need that you wont get for SailfishOS just yet.

BlackBerry OS 10:
Hospitals uses QNX, because its one of worlds most stable operating system ever made. BlackBerry OS 10 devices is QNX for mobiles. This OS delivers true multitasking and a very stable operating system. This OS also got Android compatibility now, so there are lots of apps for it.

Haiku:
If you remember the BeOS days? The OS that was commercial available for any x86 compatible PC? Well. Haiku is the Open Source version of BeOS that is getting huge improvements every month. BeOS was developed with AmigaOS datatypes system and other neat features.

We also cover other operating systems, but this is a list of OS’s that we have more info about than others. If you wish to write about a specific operating system etc, send e-mail to: [email protected]
