fantastic work, many thanks!
Now all QL hardware platforms QL, GC, SGC, Q40, Q60 and Q68 share the
same, stable filesystem on SDHC cards. And they can exchange it with
emulators on the same medium.
This was my original hope and vision, when I first started with SD cards
on the SGC parallel port and Qx0, first based on mtools, later adapting
the Steinkopf drivers, later the QL-SD interface with Qubide format,
which then again was used for the first steps on the Q68, leading to
QLWA support for all hardware in the end.
I could only pioneer FAT32 and the basics of such drivers, and I'm glad
that I did. But Wolfgang made everything so much more complete and well
integrated. The QL world owes him a big thanks!
All the best
