think of another technology that has been so totally "buried alive" in
the 90s?>>

I am new to this list but couldn't help respond to this one -- The other
great technology that got 'buried alive' (knife the baby, perhaps?) was
Hypercard, an inspiration for the development of the web and Microsoft's

But now that I'm here, I am wondering if/how Newton OS2 can be installed
on my OS1.3 for my MP120 (hot off ebay...)? All I have is the MP itself
and charger -- no manuals and no clues.

Many thanks,
