Early Digital Research CP/M source code is now available

This might be interesting for folks who are trying to understand how old OS works  :t
I read that MS DOS was influenced by CP/M. Unfortunately, I'm not a part of the generation who've experienced CP/M  :P

Anta,

Be thankful that you missed CP/M, it was a horrible toothless old pile of junk.

the PSP used in DOS was derived from CP/M   :P
that's about the extent of anything recognizable today
DOS 1.x didn't support directory structure - lol
so, as Hutch said, pretty useless

on the other hand, it was easy to disassemble

Might be fun for nostalgia reasons,but probably would not hold your interest for too long. I have played around with C64 emulator stuff,mainly because that was my first computer,and started on assembler on the 6502.
