SXB has the spacebar LOAD bypass. TIXB does not. I didn't test other XB variants.
RXB has a very different start up screen and start menu.
Push any key for DSK#.LOAD will use any key to select LOAD thus pushing A will use LOAD off of RAMDISK A
Push ZERO KEY and then press number key for WDS#.LOAD which works for SCSI or IDE or MFM hard drives.
Push ENTER KEY and same menu works for EA 5 DSK#.UTIL1 thus pushing A will use UTIL1 off of RAMDISK A
After you push ENTER KEY you can push ZERO KEY and a NUMBER KEY and will load WDS#.UTIL1 (same as the LOAD above)
Push COMMA key and same menu works for running a batch file DSK#.BATCH that works like 4A DOS text file
Or press SPACE BAR to go to EDIT MODE of XB.
