It was.  And even I could afford it while in college - $99.95 from Mark 
Williams Company.  It was a revelation compared to DOS.  Actual 
multitasking on my '286.  Actual tools like lex and yacc just like the 
big systems at school (HP mumble-thousands and Sun 2s). I wasn't in the 
Emacs camp, so the first thing I did was find a vi clone (elvis) to 
compile and use.  Lovely system it was.
