Something good could be said of both approaches. I do prefer the 
instant on of DECB. It lends itself better for embedded porojects. 
While OS9 and Niros9 requires a learning curve and some 
familiarity with Unix would not hurt. I can't complain to much as 
learning OS9 and Basic09 made learning Fortran 77 real easy.  You 
cannot believe the similarities between Basic09 and Fortran 77.
