I know 2.11 was released by DRC for the Rainbow. I still have media
with that on it (used as blanks).

However the cpu was still intel (8088). I think winders didn't run on
the 80186(8) used in one of the tandys and a few oddballs. mostly because
the 186 has some on board peripherals (DMA and interrupts) that were not
PCclone compatable. The '188 cpu was basically 8088/V20
