Several pseudo-compatibles had the ability to run Win
1.n. In actuality all you needed for the Tandy 2000
for instance were a set of *drivers* I believe. There
wasn't the actual need for a port. Being that (IINM)
Windows 1.n was written in C (like what else), does
this mean it was a "well behaved" proggie (i.e relied
on DOS/BIOS calls for low-level access).

The Otrona used quad-density drive, no?
