 Definition: 
  1. mint is not trac

  2. (MinT is not TOS - a recursive acronym) A freeware, open source operating system for the atari st range of computers. MiNT was originally based on a port of bsd to atari st computers by Eric R. Smith. MiNT gave the Atari access to BSD's many network applications. A short (1992-94) romance between MiNT and atari Corp., who decided to convert the system to the multitos kernel, produced a unique TOS/Unix hybrid, which provides simultaneous access to both gem and BSD application libraries.

    Since MiNT is MultiTOS's kernel, it has kept all the features described above and, if an aes replacement is installed, it can show you a new face of MultiTOS. Unlike MultiTOS however, MiNT is based on a different file system, that is faster and more flexible than TOS's. Furthermore, thanks to the network support, MiNT allows an Atari to be an internet server that can still run GEM and TOS applications! This has won MiNT many devotees ("MiNTquisitors"), making it the main competitor for ash's magic.

    Unlike linux, MiNT can run on a motorola 68000 with no fpu. It needs at least 4 MB of RAM, more to run multiuser or to run GEM applications at the same time.
