I can attest to the fact that NOS works with math coprocessors. I have
run lots of different versions on my 386/387 system without trouble.
In addition, NOS has no floating point operations anywhere within it,
neither accessing a real chip nor an emulator. In fact, I have had no
trouble running NOS in one DesqView window while running another math
intensive task, such as a satellite tracking program, in another window,
as long as the proper DVP flags were set.
I also have run NOS on a 286/287 system, which I sold to Rick N1HID and
on which he has lately run my releases of GRINOS. My GRINOS executables
have also been run without trouble by Jim KF1T (76666.425@CompuServe.COM)
on an 8088/8087 system, which he uses for nothing other than NOS and for
satellite tracking, although not at the same time.
