Subject: MP/M questions
1. assume i want to be running MP/M with a z-80B and a hard disk with two
users doing MINCE-type word processing and maybe a printer job in the
background. any comments on system degradation? will response time
be acceptable? or should i punt and go to a 16 bit multi-user system.
2. assume I want to run with one terminal, but demand
foreground/background capability. can i do this on an 8-bit
multi-user system? will MP/M let me do this? in principle, i want a
Concurrent CP/M 80 (by analogy to the 8086 version DR puts out), but i
don;t know of such a beast. failing this, it seems that what i should
able to do it just start up as one user a foreground job, and then as another
user a background; possible? help, please.
