I once had a pretty large collection of CP/M machines. I had three
IMSAI's. a VDP-80 and two VDP-44's. I think I had every Televideo ever
made, including the luggable and the server that ran MP/M. Altos,
Osborn, and a bunch of others. Man, think of what CP/M could do running
on a Pentium. <grins> Ric
