TSX-Lite Multi-user Operating System
TSX-Lite is a full 32-bit, multi-user, multi-tasking operating
system for 386 and 486 computer systems. TSX-Lite supports two
simultaneous users and provides full multi-tasking and
multi-sessions features allowing execution of "detached" and
background batch jobs, as well as allowing each user to control up
to 10 interactive sessions.
TSX-Lite uses the same file structure as DOS, so you can install
TSX-Lite on a DOS based computer without reformatting or
partitioning your disk. And, you can run TSX-Lite part of the time
and DOS at other times on the same computer. TSX-Lite does not
support disk compression such as Stacker or DOS DoubleSpace.
TSX-Lite runs most DOS 16-bit programs and also provides an
advanced 32-bit program environment with integral EMS, XMS, and
DPMI support. This allows execution of modern 32-bit applications
that need not be constrained by the 640kb DOS partition. Full
virtual memory support is provided with demand paging, allowing
execution of programs larger than the physical memory installed on
TSX-Lite provides support for modems and dial-in lines as well as
providing the TSXTERM terminal emulator program. This makes it
possible to call your computer and remotely execute commands and
TSX-Lite is not a limited, 16-bit, multi-DOS add-on. Rather, it is
a complete 32-bit operating system that runs exclusively in
protected mode and uses the full potential of modern 32-bit
processors. TSX-Lite has the power of DESQView, PC Anywhere,
386MAX, and Phar Lap combined.
Hardware requirements: IBM PC compatible 386 or 486 computer system
with at least 4Mb of memory and 10Mb of free disk space. The disk
must not be compressed with Stacker or DoubleSpace.
TSX-Lite is distributed in two ways: (1) a diskette installation
kit, and (2) via ZIP files distributed through bulletin boards.
The ZIP file set should consist of four files with the following
names: TSXvvvA.ZIP, TSXvvvB.ZIP, TSXvvvC.ZIP, and TSXvvvD.ZIP,
where "vvv" is the version number.
The installation of TSX-Lite is a simple process that is described
in detail in INSTALL.DOC. The TSXLITE.DOC file contains the
primary documentation for TSX-Lite.
TSX-Lite is a shareware program. As such, you are granted a 30 day
license to evaluate the product. If you find TSX-Lite to be useful
and continue to use it beyond the 30 day evaluation period you must
register to continue using it. See REGISTER.DOC for information
about registering TSX-Lite and ordering optional products.
You are welcome to make copies of the TSX-Lite distribution and
pass them on to friends or post this program on bulletin boards or
distribute it via disk catalog services provided the entire
TSX-Lite distribution is included in its original, unmodified form
and no files are added, deleted, or modified. A distribution fee
may be charged for the cost of the diskette, shipping and handling.
However, TSX-Lite may not be sold, or incorporated in another
product that is sold, without the permission of S&H Computer
