    This was a system I drooled over when I first saw the ad. The Z80 and full FORTRAN IV really helped make the difference. [@Tom Dells] That was a joke of course: the operating system was CP/M, not any version of Windows or DOS. If IBM had chosen to use CP/M and the Z80 to base their PC on, it is likely that the plague of malware would never have become as prominent as it did.
