It was sort of a competitor to OS-9 Level 1, and in some ways was better -- it made better use of a 32-64K environment. Frank Hogg got in a bit of hot water by saying Flex was better than OS-9! Then the CC3 and Level II came out. OS-9 was better than Flex given the extra memory to work with, and Flex fell to the wayside. There may have been later versions of Flex that exploited more memory, but none were developed for or ported to the CoCo3 that I know of.
I vaguely recall Frank Hogg eating his words after Level II came out.
