        The OS-9 FAQ lists it as supporting the following processors:

        6809, 68xxx, PPC, X86, Intel SARM / IXP, MIPS, SPARC, Hitachi SH

        Specific machines which ran OS-9/6809 include:

        CoCo, SWTPc SCB-69, Gimix 6809, SSB Chieftain 6809, FHL TC-9,
the FEBE, and a host of others, most of which are SS-50 bus machines.

        From the sound of the FAQ, it would appear that the SS-50 bus
machines were the platform of choice for OS-9/6809.
