Subject: Why Bother With CP/M?
No kidding! I have come across TWO S100 CP/M machines, both with nice hardware
(HDU, consoles, etc) for FREE. when you realize the raw power that a z80 has
you can see why many of us "who are stuck in the past" LIKE the Z80! according
to a test done by a friend of mine (also reachable through this common account;
email to Dent / email@example.com) the Z80a at 4MHz does a MIP. far
as I can
tell, the IBM XT doesn't even come close to a MIP. Back to my topic tho... the
BIG Z80B machine @ 6MHz runs considerably faster than a 286 /16MHz machine..
when you throw in the 80mb hard drive and a hacked up copy of Uzi (very nice)
this machine does more than i could ever want in a personal computer. ( for any
one thats ever used ariel.unm.edu, this machine is comparable. (not it
in time that it responds to user requests. )) anyways...
