Huh, that's a trip down memory lane. I didn't have that one but the first
PC I ever owned was a CP/M machine made by the same company. Marketed in
this country under the BMC name but it was made by Oki.
2nd one down here:
I took out a $2000 loan and bought it in 1984 or 1985 because the
alternative was a VAX 11/780 that had about 30-40 people trying to
compile their projects at the same time. I believe it had 4M of
ram, definitely not enough for the load.
You'd think a 64K z80 with floppies would be a down grade, it was not,
the performance was predictable, I didn't get swapped out for minutes,
it was always working just for me.
I wrote a _ton_ of code on that machine.

indicates that OKIX
came later on the model 75, but many years ago as a staff programmer at
Oregon Graduate Institute, a surplus 7300/30 followed me home, but the
sysadmins referred to it as OKIX.
if anybody's interested in the hardware to do some spelunking, email me
