You mean, the OS running in the disk drive, not the OS running in the
C-64. :-) I remember a remark from an Amiga Corp. engineer "The 1541
was the best computer Commodore ever made" when I asked him why I found
several mangled / disassembled 1541s in the dumpster behind Amiga Corp.
when it was shut down...

Amiga trivia time: I and a friend liberated the Amiga Corp. sign from
the lawn, too. It lived in his garage in San Jose for a while, then
moved to Topeka, and then back to Sacramento.
