    MINIX....? *ducks*


    I realized sitting my shelf that I have a mint in box copy of Minix 1.5 for IBM

    It is complete.... the book, disks, and backups of said disks....

    they are of 5.25" format.


    I have no use for this and figure someone else might be interested.

    I was curious if anyone was interested in buying it for like, 50.00$. It seems pretty rare/collectible....

    Interesting. I'm not much of a collector, but I'm sure someone out there is. Good luck with that.

    yes I saw it on eBay for around 150$ once, and on amazon for about that.

    I dont think its worth THAT much, but, at least something.

    I dont want to mess with ebay though.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Hey! I have an original Seattle Computer Products QDOS manual on my shelf (what became MS/PC-DOS). Any takers? FWIW, it's a remnant of the S-100 bus era.
