SkyOS SkyOS has gotten DMA support. "There's support for VIA, AMD, Intel and SiS chipsets, more will come. What does it mean? Less CPU usage and a huge speed increase for the supported PATA/SATA controllers, just check the changelog for initial benchmarks." It is available as an update for beta testers, which besides the DMA update, also includes updated drivers.

This should speed up installation quite a lot. Lack of DMA support was slowing down the unpacking of packages a lot.

It looks like the next release will be a major upgrade compared to current release
