2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

About the Info Box

The Dragon 32 and 64 were near clones of the TRS-80 Color Computer made by Mettoy in the United Kingdom, specifically Wales, which has a red dragon in its flag.

There was also a "Dragon" (no 32 or 64 in the name) made by Tano for the United States market.

In addition to the ports and features standard to the CoCo, the Tano Dragon also had:

  • Extended Color BASIC as standard.
  • 48K available in BASIC compared to the CoCo's 32K.
  • A parallel printer port.
  • A 5-pin DIN port for a composite color monitor.
