  Arthur Summary
Stories of Arthur, like many other northern British heroic legends, were relocated in early medieval Wales and achieved great popularity even before the arrival of the Normans in the eleventh century opened the way for this material to become a major component in the chivalric literatures of western Europe.
Arthur is a common male name, meaning "bearlike," believed to possibly be descended from the Roman surname Artorius or the Celtic bear-goddess Artio or more probably from the celtic word artos (bear).

 Arthur (operating system): Definition and Links by Encyclopedian.com
Arthur is an early GUI operating System (OS) that was used on Acorn ARM-cpu-based computers from about 1987 until the much-superior RISC OS 2 was completed and made available in April 1989.
The "Arthur" name was supposedly dropped from version 2 because of the release at the time of a movie called Arthur 2: On the Rocks[?].
Supposedly Arthur was put together in break-neck speed because a revolutionary operating system they had under development ("ARX") wasn't going to be ready in time.

 The Force of An Idea   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Arthur's paper argued that the underlying assumptions of the Chicago School simply don't apply to large parts of the economy, especially the high-technology and communications industries.
Arthur had taken degrees in electrical engineering and mathematics before turning to the dismal science, and he still refers to himself as an "applied mathematician" rather than as an economist.
Most computer buyers know little about the operating system, which is usually pre-installed by computer manufacturers, but they care greatly about the availability of a large number of applications, such as games, word processors, and spreadsheets, to run on top of the operating system.

 Amazon.com: Arthur (The Pendragon Cycle, Book 3): Books: Stephen R. Lawhead   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
He was Arthur -- Pendragon of the Island of the Mighty -- who would rise to legendary greatness in a Britain torn by violence, greed, and war; who would usher in a glorious reign of peace and prosperity; and who would fall in a desperate attempt to save the one be loved more than life.
Most of the beloved parts of the Arthur legend are from the sword in the stone, to the Lady of the Lake to the dissapearance of Avalon, Lawhead does it all in one novel.
Although Arthur needed to unite Britain in order to have peace in the land, the book often seems bogged down by battle after battle; there are only so many ways to make each battle different from the next, and I sometimes found myself skimming through these skirmishes in order to get back to the story.

During a Windows 95 automatic upgrade of an older Windows 3.1 system, DOS and third party disk utilities which could destroy long file names were identified and made unavailable, also Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows had a tendency to indicate that the upgrade program was itself a computer virus.
Similar GUI features had been used for some years in desktop computers by Acorn's Arthur and RISC OS operating systems, but the market for those systems was extremely restricted.
