And perhaps Venix and POS might not handle RD32s and RD53s? What
about MicroVMS 1.0? For that matter, I think that might bring into
question RQDX1 vs RQDX3 compatibility. It's been long enough that I'm
a bit fuzzy on the differences from an OS driver standpoint (I
remember well enough the differences in drive support and low-level
I would not consider lack of RD51 and RD52 support to be a
deal-breaker, but if one is going to make a generic MSCP Q-bus SSD
controller, one might as well permit 5MB and 10MB slices as well as
73MB and 154MB slices (since at the OS level, it eventually boils down
(mostly) to disks of N-blocks-long).
At $200, I'd consider one. At a lower price, I'd consider multiples.
