Arrakis Educational Software - Sciences

Post by bjjones37 »

At one time there was a series of Educational programs disks released referred to as the Arrakis series (if my memory serves). It had physics, chemistry, biology, etc. Have these disappeared or can they still be found anywhere? I noticed that they have never shown up on any menu disks that I ever found.

I own one of them (geometry I think) and have the disk images somewhere. Maybe I can upload it here for you this week.

I've seen the other programs in the series for sale in some online shops before. If you're willing to pay google for them and you may find them for sale.

And here's the geometry disks.

Note that I think disk B has a virus (Ghost Virus?) that you should try removing before running it!

So long as you don't boot from Disk B, you'll be OK :)

Very true. I only ever tested it as-is, and Disk B wouldn't get past the title screen. Maybe someone else will have better luck?

Just in case I would like to revisit this one. Has anyone come across the Arrakis Educational software series for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology?

I checked the disk B with Ultimate Virus Killer 2000 v9.0GB and it said the disk was safe. How did you find that Ghost Virus?

Hi guys,
I didn´t start a new topic, because I´m searching this arrakis educational software too. I´m interested in the volumes about biology and chemistry. I´m from europe and here there is no chance in getting this software via ebay and others.

Greetings,
stokowski

Whoa, I'm way late here and you aren't likely to see this reply (or care anymore) but the virus was detected by MAKEDISK on PC. It could have been a false positive however.
