Back in the early part of the last decade I had a Tandy 6000 that had
Microsoft Xenix installed on an external 20Meg Harddrive. It also had
two eight inch floppies. It was larger than a normal PC, but smaller
than a rack mount system. I also had several Tandy terminals to go with
it. These looked like the 6K, but had no "brains" in them.

Alas, the Tandy 6K is another one of those machines I wish I had never
gotten rid of, along with the IMSAI 8008 I sold for 50 bucks back in the
mid eighties.
