in reply to My first computer was...

Actually it was an 8085 with 32K of memory. The OS was written by the floppy-disk manufacturer, Micropolis. A year or so later, this thing called CPM (not critical path managment) came out and I looked at it, but since my existing clients all were using the former, it took a while to catch on...

    an Amstrad 6128 , with CPM on the external ROM box.

    I loved that machine, good ROM basic, nice disk management, two switchable 64K memory blocks (the kind of switch you can hear click!) , weird 3" disks (not 3.5" or 5.25")

    Sniff . I miss it more every day


    I can't believe it's not psellchecked
