MicroDeck Returns to Operating System Market with “Archway”


MicroDeck announced that their highly secret project, which had been keeping the computer world guessing while it was under the code-name “Mitnick”, is in reality a new CommLink Operating System that will be marketed under the name “Archway”. Designed for a broad spectrum of hardware systems, MicroDeck promises that it will even function under proprietary hardware systems using their newly developed Poly-Adaptive Hardware Interface.

“The Archway OS is designed with the basic user in mind, and will utilize the standardized iconography that's used the world over, preventing the need for different versions of the OS for different languages. A copy you buy in Japan will be an identical install to one that is purchased in Seattle.” Hans Overmann, Head of Marketing for MicroDeck, stated in the press conference that revealed the new program, “This will allow for ease of transition to any marketplace, as even design differences in the hardware of different equipment available in different countries will not be a problem for Archway. In addition, security is foremost in the Archway's design concept, with a superior security suite system bundled into the OS that's superior to anything at a comparable price.”


“MicroDeck got out of the OS business after Crash 2.0, when it was revealed that their operating systems had been significantly more vulnerable to that event, with not even one of their online systems having been able to be restored in any way. Admittedly, even the best OS under Crash 2.0, ironically enough the old and buggy OS Fuchi ServerMaster 4.8, still had an 88% failure rate, but the blow to consumers confidence in MicroDeck was very telling when the Wireless Matrix Initiative was put into effect, and MD was unable to find any major distributors that were willing to bundle their prototype Wireless-Compatible OS.” Commented Dan Witticker, writer for Wiredless ComputerBlog, “Time will tell if the new Archway will be able to stand up against their more entrenched opponents.”

I would advise that anyone who values their 'link avoid this OS. Some megas are looking to carve up Mircodeck, and the failure of Archway is one step of many.

Actually, the Megas had their shot a few times at MicroDeck, and refused to do so. Or were prevented from doing so somehow...

It looks decent at first glance, even if it's not stellar. Good for those who want an OS to cut their teeth on but my bigest concern is...
...Is it NERPS compatable?
