I would love to get my hands on a copy of Xenix, I want to see if MS was able to write a unix that was stable lol. Also I can add it to my collection.
I thought the closest thing to Unix was OS\2, but then again IBM did hald the work most likely. But thats ALOT different.
The only problem is, how to image this disks? WinImage wont take it, I don't think.
Any suggestions and you'll have your XENIX (And ABW UNIX) in no time!
I did some research on it and it was made before DOS, It was a rip off from AT&T Unix (AKA BSD).
And will Windows usrs be able to read/use them (THe images)?
I can make disk images in linux with a simple little tool that comes with Fedora.
Could Linux image the floppys or you need like BSD,etc.
Have to remember that BSD is a type of Unix and linux if setup right can read all sorts of file systems.
I think the tool is called makraw or makeraw. Need to reinstall fedora and find out.
Sounds cool. Hopefully its for 128K, 260K or 720K.
wasnt OS\2 v2.0 the first true 32-bit version?
No, I fixed that.
That were most widely spreaden computers of that time! (1988)
