With many thanks to Bill Sgambati for providing his disks for me to archive, the Altair community now has access to Altair Timesharing BASIC 2.0.

Version 2.0 is an important upgrade from version 1.x in that it adds programmed disk I/O as present in single user Disk BASIC. Timesharing BASIC 1.x could load and save programs from disk, but programs could not do disk I/O.

The disk images are available at http://deramp.com/downloads/index.php?dir=altair%2Fsoftware%2F8_inch_floppy%2F BASIC%2FTimesharing+BASIC%2F

Manuals for Timesharing BASIC are available at http://deramp.com/downloads/index.php?dir=altair%2Fsoftware%2Fmanuals%2F

Bill also provided a bootable disk that installs a real time clock driver for single user Altair BASIC using the 88-VI/RTC board from MITS. This disk image is available at http://deramp.com/downloads/index.php?dir=altair%2Fsoftware%2F8_inch_floppy%2F BASIC%2F
