    Well, I can’t really quote prices here, but I can say that we are
    “very similar to other systems sold” in price. I am refering, of course,
    to other vendors who sell complete systems or kits, not the ones who
    sell re-furbished hard drive systems.

    Say maybe $500 for a 20 meg system?

    Actually, Roger…

    WE don’t mind your quoting prices where it is clear you
    are being asked a direct question by a member about such
    matters. So you may feel free to do so… observing
    of course our usual SIG rules for sober, factual, reporting
    of stuff about one’s own products, and staying away from
    anything tht looks like advertising or hype or disparaging
    comparisons to to other stuff.

    Naturally, were we to suspect the “member” is a ringer
    and the question is a “setup” to allow an ad, we’d
    be upset. A long time ago there were folks here…
    and on CIS… who did that. But we haven’t seen such
    sneaky stuff here in a long time,… and I doubt you
    are the sort who’d try that!

    So… to repeat… IF a member asked an unsolicited
    question about how much a given one of your products
    costs, none of us here on staff have any objection
    to your answering that question.

    Around $500 for a “kit” (you assemble & format) or about $600 for a
    “ready to run” finished system. (20 meg) Also available with various
    configurations, such as (1) All RS-DOS (Basic), (2) OS-9 and RS-DOS or
    (3) All OS-9. The OS-9 can be booted into directly from hard disk
    without losing Disk Basic or using special boot roms. You boot into
    OS-9 from the RS-DOS hard disk (with the DOS command). I think Dale
    Puckett will be discussing this setup in the coming Rainbow.

    I use B&B XT-ROM. I have two boot files. 1One is for me, and loads a standard
    shell. But my dad can press O on boot, and the other boot file loads in
    a menu program, so he doesn’t have to ever touch the Shell. He likes it!
