The IBM 6152
Academic System combines a Model 60 with a 32-bit RISC
processor (similar to the RT PC processor), together
with a Motorola MC68881 floating point processor.
The primary OS for
the 6152 is the IBM Academic Operating System 4.3
(IBM/4.3). The IBM/4.3 operating system is derived
from the 4.3 Berkeley Software Distribution (4.3 BSD)
version of a UNIX operating system. The X Window
System, version 11 is provided as an integral part of
IBM/4.3. The X Window System is a network-transparent
windowing system that provides a base for the operation
of application programs. Token-Ring and Ethernet
networks are supported on the 6152.
The 6152 is also supported by the DOS 3.3 and OS/2 Standard 1.0 operating systems. When operating under DOS 3.3 or OS/2 Standard 1.0 the 6152 does not use the RISC processor or RISC RAM storage. Only one operating system can run at any time. DOS 3.3 and OS/2 Standard 1.0 do not support the RISC processor or RISC RAM.
