I read about this but only a brief description.
Walters software


Is there such a thing?

How far did it go?

If so why not expand this into the new ADAM OSX?

Anyone want to fill in the blanks.

There is a recent discussion about EOS9 on the Coleco ADAM Facebook page where James Walters is a member.  EOS9 was used in a number of Walter's Software titles and was a custom, enhanced version of the EOS operating system.  I don't know of any titles beyond Walter's that used it.  Walter's also released the EOS Programming kit which included EOS9.  The programming kit manual has reemerged and is available (on the Facebook page files section) but the media for the kit has not.  I suppose the media could be reconstructed since EOS9 is built in to those other Walter's titles.

As far as Walters Software's EOS9, within their programs that include it like Adam's Desktop, options are available to boot other software programs like SmartBasic in order to keep EOS9 resident in memory. Other Coleco titles can be booted this way as well or exit the WS program into SmartWriter and keep EOS9 in memory instead of a hard boot where Coleco's EOS5 is placed back into memory.
