Man, I really felt like I had a mainframe at home when I first got in to OS-9. Back then the big computer users I knew would tell me how useless multitasking was. Except Amiga users ;) They knew but theirs was not multiuser. Most didn't care about. Multiuser anyway but I used it extensively as well.

Now I kinda wish I had some modern 6809 hardware to use just as a terminal based OS-9 system. I wonder if the FPGA will suffice? I don't want to leave my CoCo on unattended.
