As I never saw any Win32 api specs and whatever, I guess, that SymbOS is not Win32 compliant at allI hope you keep that way Tongue
Regarding Sunrise, I think that Rob is doing his job (his hobby) in such a good and professional way, that people may get the impression, it is commercial.I totally agree, Sunrise stuff looks absolutely professional.

7th Edition Unix is a FAR cry from POSIX. A program written for 7th Edition Unix probably wouldn't compile for a modern POSIX-ish system and a program written for a POSIX-ish system would almost CERTAINLY not compile on 7th Edition Unix... So "we're close enough to 7th Edition Unix that an old version of the Bourne shell (which is, in and of itself already non-POSIX compliant. ksh and zsh are the only truly compliant shells, though bash comes fairly close...) might compile unmodified if it weren't for the crappy C compiler we use.

I'm not dissing UZIX. It's an impressive acheivement (although until I see it running X11, it's not as good as SymbOS). It's just nowhere CLOSE to POSIX. It's not even V7...

X11? Are you dreaming? Pratically impossible on a 8 bit...Cool

Oh, by the way, a cool Uzix screenshot that I took several years ago performing bogomips and dhrystones in Z80 and R800 mode:
