I had a Coco III and could run OS9/level II ( I just had level #1) but
my floppy controller died and could not get expansion memory to go past
128k. Later too the monitor died and there was no reason to keep the
coco as I had a PC with a HD at that time. A new 6809 level 2 system
would not be that hard to create from scratch but
parts are getting scarce.
