For whatever reason. It was, and still is, a working solution for big applications and games, and Ghislain is going that way with Realms of Quest 5.
Well, the 1581 seems incompatible with the DIRECTORY command in BASIC V4, at least when I try that the directory listing usually stops at some random place. I'm having no problem with the DIRECTORY command with a 1541-II though, or if I do LOAD"$", 8 followed by LIST with a 1581.
