does that include old systems like PC-MOS?

ok, maybe it wasn't 32bit but it was multi-user multi-tasking and ran many DOS programs without problem... we ran one of our dBaseIII/IV/Foxbase (before m$ got hold of it) accounting packages on PC-MOS and i used PC-MOS as a development environment for other similar dB/FB development... it was especially easy to watch code running on one wyse terminal while feeding data on from another terminal and debugging on the main terminal...
