Never really "got into" OS-9, however assuming it's reasonably portable, I
can't see why it wouldn't - The hardware of my design is very simple. If
OS/9 doesn't already have drivers for the 765 FDC you would have to write
them (use the Cubix ones as an example). But really It's not tied to CUBIX,
it's a general 6809 design -+ just tweak it to meet any particular OS/9 needs.
