§ 5 - Where are they now?

TSC is out of business, its principals scattered, and the original source code for the operating system appears to be lost. I have been in contact with Dave Shirk, the founder of TSC and author of FLEX, and have received his permission to distribute these emulation packages.

I was also unable to locate Percom; perhaps they too have gone out of business — but I've not been able to confirm this. The number of FLEX systems in use today is certainly a very small number.

Other companies that were involved in FLEX-based computers are still around (such as GIMIX & Frank Hogg Laboratories) but they understandably have moved on to other projects.

I contacted the companies mentioned above that I was able to locate, and while the principals were very helpful, no commercial activity takes place with regard to FLEX any longer.
