ProDOS was comissioned to be the 'Professional Disk Operating System', abbreviated 'ProDOS', and was first part of the Apple III's 'Sophisticated Operating System' (SOS, for an unfortunate acronym related to the general state of the Apple III).
ProDOS was designed to be a replacement for DOS 3.3, and added many features not part of original DOS 3.3 such as support for disks other than the 5.25" drive, as well as directories and timestamping of files.
ProDOS also has the ability to not reside on a disk when first formatted (at obvious disk space savings), but be copied on later and the disk will be bootable if copied correctly to the root directory as well as an application to run at boot.

ProDOS 8 1.3 Warning: This is not a stable version of ProDOS due to an illegal 65C02 instruction which was added.
ProDOS 8 1.5 o ProDOS 8 1.5 is the first version to include network support through the ProDOS Filing Interface (PFI) as part of ProDOS 16 or on the Apple IIe Workstation Card without booting over the server (see the warning under version 1.4).

ProDOS was designed to be a replacement for DOS 3.3, and added many features not part of original DOS 3.3 such as support for disks other than the 5.25 drive, as well as directories and time stamping of files.
ProDOS allows directories to be created and files stored in them, time/date stamping of files, and support for disks other than the original Apple 5.25 drive (Disk II).
ProDOS also has the ability to not reside on a disk when first formatted (at obvious disk space savings), but be copied on later if necessary.

Unless ProDOS 8 finds all five ID bytes in an Apple IIe or later, it will not identify the card as an 80-column card and will enable the built-in 80-column firmware instead.
The ProDOS 8 Update Manual notes that an Apple IIGS does not switch in the 80- column firmware if it is not selected in the Control Panel.
ProDOS 8 cannot respect the Control Panel setting for 80-column firmware in certain situations; it cannot operate in a 128K machine in a 128K configuration (including /RAM) without the presence of the 80-column firmware, since it must utilize the extra 64K.

 Apple II History Chap 15
In 1984, when ProDOS was released for the Apple II as a "Professional Disk Operating System", the same file structure was used.
The new operating system was called ProDOS 16, and the operating system intended for use with 8-bit software (both on the IIGS and on the older Apple II's) was renamed ProDOS 8.
This made large, partitioned hard disks usable even to Apple IIc and enhanced IIe users (this version of ProDOS 8 required the opcodes of the 65c02 chip, although ProDOS 8 v1.9 was still available to run on the Apple II Plus or unenhanced IIe).

 Apple II Csa2 FAQs: DOS & ProDOS, Part 6/25
ProDOS has lots of nice features-- mainly, you can create sub- directories, diskettes ("volumes") can be named, and ProDOS works well on hard disks.
Creating bootable ProDOS diskettes is more bother than creating bootable DOS 3.3 diskettes because ProDOS does not have any way to duplicate itself from memory-- i.e., it has no INIT command.
ProDOS is in a file on a bootable ProDOS disk and so, usually, is the ProDOS 'connection' to BASIC, named "BASIC.SYSTEM".

If it is indeed not a ProDOS or DOS 3.3 disk, you can work with it, BUT the block numbers at the bottom of the screen might be incorrect, the CAT screen format will be meaningless, the search feature might not find words that cross block boundaries, and the disk map will be pure baloney.
ProDOS FILE NAME CHANGES When changing ProDOS file names, always set the high bit off if you want to be able to access the file (in which case you could simply use the RENAME command).
PRODOS must be on a disk or the disk will not boot.

ProDOS has lots of nice features-- mainly, you can create sub-directories, diskettes ("volumes") can be named, and ProDOS works well on hard disks.
Since DOS 3.3 programs which do direct writes can, possibly, damage a ProDOS disk (see Question 22), be sure to run any risky-looking tests from a booted ProDOS diskette for which you have a backup.
From: David Empson A safer method is to BLOAD the file elsewhere, and copy data onto the text screen in a loop, copying 120 bytes and skipping 8 bytes, repeated 8 times.

 ProDOS 8 Technical Note #26
Apple has a large section of memory reserved, but my investigations reveal that this memory (in a language card, where it is doubly valuable since it stays put when main memory is swapped) seems to be unused.
The ProDOS 8 Technical Reference Manual states unfailingly that the memory must not be used, but it seems to be wasting away!
This means that if ProDOS 8 were to ever expand to run only on 128K machines and require auxiliary language card memory, that no /RAM device would be installed by default.

 GS/OS and ProDOS block devices | Applefritter
I've written a generic ProDOS block driver for it, which simply maps 65535 blocks to the lowest 16 bits of LBA sectors.
What that did do for me though was tell me that the problem wasn't with the boot stub as I suspected, but with the PRODOS stub (GS/OS loader).
Seems that write cycles to the IDE aren't as solid as they are under ProDOS, can't get a good install of GS/OS on the HDD, just enough to see it's working.
