I had a Heath H8 when I was about 12 -- traded my Trash80 Model I
for it.  Later I had a z80-based Morrow MD11 which ran CP/M off
of an 11MB internal hard drive.  And came with a development
environment (assembly only). And WordStar!  I just loved CP/M,
and later when I encountered Unix for the first time in grad
school, I thought, "Oh, it's just like CP/M, except better!"
