Xtal Basic had more features than the full blown Microsoft which was around 13K ISTR and Xtal Basic was less than 7K.

I was a member of the Devon computer society back in the late 70's early 80's and no one could understand why Microsoft tried to use all of the then common RAM size of 16K and 16K of ROM was a lot back then.

If I can find it I will share the Xtal Basic Hackers Guide.

Cheers
