YANS (Yes Another Nos Survey)



[[ If surveys really annoy you, send it to the bitbucket, NOW ]]
[[ THANKS if you continued or saved the flames for dev-null.  ]]

 - PLEASE, preserve the subject line in replies _YANS_.

 - If you are familiar with more than ONE NOS, please, feel free to
 - clone this and answer it for more than one flavor of NOS.  Partial
 - info helps too, fills in the holes.  Thank you ..

  Seems like there is a version of NOS that Does Everything ..

  Ian Wade, G3NRW, did an exhaustive paper in Sept 1990 of 8 plus
  pages detailing KA9Q/PA0GRI (900721) vs KA9Q/G1EMM (900710).  I
  do not wish to try to meet that fine work level, just a summary.

By all means, if I left out some data points, put them in.

  This NOS runs friendly in MS Windows 3.0          Y/N (   )
  This NOS runs friendly in QEMM     Ver (      )   Y/N (   )
  This NOS runs friendly in DesqView Ver (      )   Y/N (   )

To your knowledge, are there any TWO NOSs with the same create date?
Without regard to Who Made any NOS you know about would _NOSyymmdd_
uniquely identify every ham radio NOS ? based on Phil's original
work ?

Are there any other NOSs ( a la ka9q ) that ARE NOT based on ka9q ?
Please, dont include NCSA Telenet and those separately identifyable
products.  Thanks for your help in this .. just a frustrated config
management type person in need of something useful to do.

Has anyone checked with the archie server on sources of NOS ?
Archie is a telnet or email service of cs.mcgill.ca,
archie.rutgers.edu, archie.sura.net .. etc .. or email to
archie@cs.mcgill.ca, if memory serves me right which gets the
enquirer a list of what is downloadable from where.  Dont know if it
points to email (ftpmail) servers.  There are remote clients like
kehoe that allow slow packet remote lookups ( or mail maybe ).

Appreciate your help in this .. /Ev/
