    Some of just lurk on these lists and post about once a decade <G> 
Seriously, it does appear that there's a good amount of hardward 
development going on. Also, it takes a good, solid, readily available OS 
to encourage software development. Since my OS/9 disks have been bad 
since probably before the last time I posted to these lists, that has 
been a bit of a problem. With NitrOS-9 available now for the stock 6809, 
we have a readily available OS. I think, while you have some points, 
that the pieces are falling into place nicely for CoCo development to 
really pick up pace.
