I love fooling around with old microprocessors too, but one of my issues
is that I hate writing software for them. After I get all the hardware
built, I'm kind of stuck with the question "Now what???" Toggling in little
LED blinking programs and things like that gets old pretty fast. That's one
reason I picked the 6120 - OS/8 and related stuff is readily available on
the Internet - and the Elf - there's lots of original Elf software around,
plus Mike Riley did a great job writing a real disk OS for it.
I know there was at one time an OS/9 for the 6809 - does anybody know the
status of that today? Is there other software for the 6809 floating around
Of course, you may not share my hangups about writing software ...
