OSNews, Generic OSes "Punix is a Unix-like operating system for the Motorola M68000-based TI graphing calculators, starting with the TI-92+. It is currently under development and is not ready for widespread use yet. So far the kernel is being written, and user-space utilities and applications will follow." ...amazing.

those are not "graphing calculators", they are CAS. Graph calc like TI-83 and 84 don't even have a % of the features the CAS ones have.

Which is funny, considering that the HP-40G is a tangible proof that you can make a CAS run okay on weaker (and cheaper) hardware than a TI-83+.

Market segmentation is something beyond logic. I am impressed that it even works.
