I put the piggyback RAM board in, which gave me, I think, 1 Meg of RAM. 
I also found that the whole system ran faster and better (especially 
under OS9) with two floppy drives.

Programmed that puppy in OS9BASIC and 6809 Assembler...Much preferred 
the Assembler.  A lot less confusing than Microsoft's assembler!  But I 
had to shift over to PCs when I figured out that Tandy wasn't supporting 
the CoCo system. They took the  40-connector extension boards out of 
their inventory and that killed the market right there.  Another raid 
from Microsoft?
