Here is the list of the TI-73 OSes:
1.3004 1.3007 1.40 1.50 1.60 1.80 1.85 1.90 1.91

That list is often very incomplete on TI-73 web pages.


If you download Virtual TI 3.0, you get a very basic and incomplete TI-73 emulator.
http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/261/26120.html

It comes with a TI-73 skin which "seems" normal.


If you open that skin with a VTI skin editor (or just extract the image), you'll notice some text on the screen...
That text is normally hidden, because the VTI emulated screen is displayed over the image.


The text mentions an OS 1.4006 . . .


So my question:

Has that OS really existed?
Or is it a modified/hacked ROM used for example to test 6-characters-long version strings, like 1.3004 and 1.3007 ?


Thanks.
