In the 1970s, Prime Computer developed an operating system named DOS (don’t confuse it with MS-DOS) for its minicomputing system. In the mid-1980s, it attained popularity. Prime was a contender in mainline minicomputer OS. Prime got kicked out in the 1990s because of the decline of mini industries. With the advent of PC, the trademark PRIME and PrimeOS no longer existed. Some of the useful tools of PrimeOS were BASIC, BASICV, COBOL, etc.
