Stub? more like super-stub. I can't beleive this is the best result I can get for a Google search for "SASOS kernel"

Amiga ?[edit]

Wonder if AmigaOS is a SASOS. Ok it as a single address space (as many other basic systems...) but is it really "shared" ?

I'd appreciate a citation or reference to justify this addition.

What is definition of "shared" here? There is no memory protection and applications can pass data to each others without copying. I tried to find references but found nothing. The best description could be Exec message passing... Xorxos (talk) 19:57, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
The Amiga used the TRIPOS operating system, which was indeed an single address space system (necessary to hit the low price point, it used a stock 68000 without any MMU hardware).
The original MIT Lisp Machine and I think its successors were also single address space systems, check the 5th paragraph of the Technical overview section. Hga (talk) 13:08, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
