Unix for 8080/Z80? [Re: WooHoo!! PC/XT Unix anyone?]

Damn. I'm home and can't look it up... But I believe I recall something
called (IIRC) "Micronix" (or something similar) that ran on a Godbout
or Morrow system. I have some hardware documentation for the system
that ran it - got it in anticipation of getting one of the S-100 CPU

The system had a memory paging system on top of a Z-80 and included
some fairly sophisticated protection (both memory and I/O) that would
have permitted a Unix-like system to operate securely.

I'll dig it up next week.
