Yep - I think the Z280 was a few years too late, was it not?

MC68k or NS32016 would have been the obvious candidates, I suppose!

I still have to get OS/9 up and running on my Dragon* 64 once it makes it to 
this side of the Pond. I do have an Acorn BBC micro with a 68008 coprocessor 
in it that runs OS/9, and it seems to be a lovely little OS.

* Dragon 32's were to all intents and purposes the same as a Tandy CoCo I 
believe. The D64 added a serial port and more memory (and in the case of OS/9, 
a cartridge-based FDC) over the D32.
