I was skimming the Wikipedia article for tsx-plus, some of it seemed off to
me. Anyone know the facts for sure?


1)      They suggest tsxplus generally didn't support more than 8 users
well. At my high school, we had 16 users on it constantly and it seemed to
perform very well. Anyone have experience along those lines?

2)      They say LEX-11 (wordprocessing) was included. I don't believe so.

3)      They say a spreadsheet program from Saturn Software was included. I
don't think so. Saturn had a wordprocessor, but it was a chargeable product
and I don't think S&H distributed it.

4)      They say the latest version of TSX-Plus has TCP/IP support. That's
not true, at least not built in. There was a TCP/IP stack done by a 3rd
party (actually, think it was a person that ported one and put it in a
public contributed library) but that wasn't "included" by S&H.


Do I have those things wrong?
