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.

Does anybody developing software these days take computer science classes???
yes, I did. And although you learn what DMA is and how it works, I doubt you will see a real implementation, let alone if you have to implement it yourself...
