Are you doing a clean boot?

It would be nice to see the whole desktop! at the moment I think you are running Ease as a layer (replacement desktop) ?

Yep, looks similar to Ease but there is no any desktop application here.
Here you can see clean boot under Hatari:

What about looking TOS header ? I bet that there stays 1.02 :D
Someone just replaced icons, and maybe some patches.
Famous Schrodinger's cat hypothetical experiment says that cat is dead or alive until we open box and see condition of poor animal, which deserved better logic. Cat is always in some certain state - regardless from is observer able or not to see what the state is.

OK,
It was my question (on local PL forum) about this strange TOS,
and Cyprian also asked this question here.

What I am most interested in?

1) Does anyone ever met with such modified TOS version?
2) Where this modification could be made (factory, local branch or homemade)?

I must add that the computer having this TOS was purchased in July 1990,
in the German Quelle store. Year later, I bought it from the first owner.

I didn't change the TOS, and I'm 99% sure that the first owner also did not.
TOS is in EPROMs http://koplinscy.fm.interia.pl/atari/DSC_6969_.jpg

So, why is in my ST so freaky TOS?

Is there some software 'we' can give you to run ? So that you can upload an image of this? GEMRam ? or is that 4> only?

you think if they add Mac icons they'd change the system font to monaco aswell!

Dear erOS ,

seems that your TOS is a modified German 1.02 TOS.
As per attached picture I suppose that all chips were reprogrammed and replaced the original ones.

This is quite interesting TOS with the nice icons, so I will include it to my TOS Images collection
at http://avtandil.narod.ru/tose.html

Finally I came to my site and put your erOS to my TOS collection as promised.

There's no problem. Dima, that's cool and nice. But it's a small pity that I still don't know why my TOS is patched and who did it :)

Recently I had a 520ST with this TOS... it would be great to make a collection of such custom TOSes.
