Re: Zombix

I have a copy of IBM Xenix 1.0 that I found far better than MS-DOS for learning C programming many years ago.

MS-DOS: dereference invalid pointer -> black hole -> hardware reset & OS reload -> fix program.

Xenix: dereference invalid pointer -> bus error -> fix program.

Saved me a lot of irritation and time.
