When I placed an order for a Parallax SX Key, I inquired as to why the price
was listed as $199 in some places and $249 in others.  I was told that the
original $199 price was for DOS software, but that they had decided to sell
a "fancier" Windows version instead, so they raised the price.

I implored them to please either include the DOS version in the package, or
somehow make it available, for those of us that don't want to or can't run
Windows.  I specifically mentioned the possibility of use under Linux DOSEMU.

Even if they don't officially support the DOS version (and they certainly
aren't likely to support it under DOSEMU), I still want to try to use it.

They did say that they'd had a few requests for it.  I'd suggest that everyone
who is willing to buy the SX Key, and wants DOS software, please send a polite
request to Parallax:

Cheers,

Are they available now?  *PRESS* release date shows as 22nd this
month.  What delivery date did you get quoted?
