Charlie,  I don't know how far back you go with the CoCo, but there were 
apps that would look fairly good even on today's computers.  Such RSDOS 
apps as the VIP Library, MAX-10 & CoCoMax3 were ,and still are superb. 
 The problem that exists on nearly all the good apps is to get them 
working on HGBDOS or to port them over to OS-9.  They used their own 
disk commands and need to hacked into conformity.  There were also some 
very good apps for OS-9 that seemed to disappear into the woodwork like 
MVCanvas.  So, it may not be a requirement of programming from scratch, 
 but just digging in and hacking away.  Unforch, it is a little above my 

Cheers,  Griz
