eek, yes of course.
i was thinking of when IBM decided they wanted a 'real' operating
system and subcontracted out the development of OS/2 to MS. Had they
chosen someone different we might have had a nice GUIish OS on top of

as someone else pointed out, unix was already in use on much smaller
machines than the PC, including MMU less arches.
if only... if only...
