TRIPOS is a computer operating system. It was developed in 1978 at the Computer Laboratory of Cambridge University by Martin Richards. It formed the basis for much of the code of early versions of the AmigaOS.
TRIPOS was ported to a number of machines, including the Data General Nova 2, the Computer Automation LSI4 , plus Motorola 68000 and Intel 8086- based hardware. It included support for the Cambridge Ring local area network. More recently, Martin Richards produced a port of TRIPOS to run under Linux, using BCPL Intcode.
