  They're not the only one with an OS in ROM. The Amiga has been known to
do that as well [1]. OS-9 [3] is also ROMable.

  You've never met an Amiga user, have you? 8-)

[3] A Unix-like OS originally written for the 6809 and available on the
        68000. I'm not sure if you can get it for other CPUs though.
