Other way around. The original OS-9/68K died, while OS-9000 (renamed to "OS-9 for XXX") survives to this day. X86 port still exists, as it is used for the demo CD. I noticed they still offer that, and that was the main reason Microware kept it alive during my time there. It was a good demo platform and development testing environment.
