I've drooled over a Gimix ever since I saw the first ad for them *way* back
in HotCoCo - They were multiuser/multitasking 6809-based machines that ran
OS-9 Level 1 & 2. Some of the later boxes came with 512K RAM (*long* before
the CoCo3...)

I could give one a *very* good home... ;-)

(See my next post about my finds, tho...)

If at first you don't succeed, nuclear warhead
