The Tandy 6000 computer had an internal hard drive and was sold by Radio Shack. Xenix was an early operating system of Unix for microcomputer applications, developed by AT&T in the late 1970s, and it became the most popular system in the 1980s. The disk would be inserted into a disk drive on the side of the computer to boot the computer.
