Welcome to QXL.WIN, the QL Container 

Contact me on: collector (followed by the usual email symbol and) qxl.win. Or via the qlforum.co.uk, I am user Chr$.

Last update - 7/11/21 (added rather long page on the Psion suite).

This is QXL.WIN, the online container* for my Sinclair QL related collection of hard/software. I like to focus on originality, so for each item I try to show a number of large images and for software I also list the names and sizes of all files on the original media plus the original media name - so you can compare your items (let me know about any differences). I often have swaps available or for sale and am always on the look-out for anything QL related that isn't on my list - especially original microdrive cartridges.

This website has been constructed (in 2021) using very basic HTML with just pictures and text in the hope that users of computers with less sophisticated browsers may also be able to access it.

Some related info: PDF intro to the QL and some hardware developments : Info on the Psion versions and labels : My Rarity Scale : Why I Collect QL? : Tips on Microdrive Cartridge Recovery : My Recovery Statistics.

It's just a list for now with some pages completed (useful for me so that I can see what I already have when I'm not at home!). Eventually, when I find the time, I hope to add a page for each item.

*QXL.WIN was originally the name of the container file on IBM compatible FAT partitions that the 16-bit ISA Miracle Systems QXL(II) card used as its hard drive. Since then, it has become the main container file type for QDOS files and has been implemented on other QL compatible systems, is also implemented in a number of emulators and just recently got added support as a container file on SMSQ/E - the OS evolution of the QL's original QDOS. Ironically, QXL.WIN type container files can, in conjunction with the QL-SD interface, now be used on original QL computers.
