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.

It looks to me like this is just disk DMA support, so I guess the OS supported DMA for other devices already in some method? I'm sure they weren't going byte by byte off of network cards...
