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

Emacs camp, so the first thing I did was find a vi clone (elvis) to
compile and use. Lovely system it was.
