Booting MP/M 2
Booting MP/M 2, also fully banked system.




MP/M 2 Multitasking
MP/M 2 is a timesharing system, it can run multiple programs on 8-bit microcomputers in 1981, with UNIX like job control. It also was in 1981 when I got one of the first IBM PC's. The system came with a crippled 8088 processor, not even half as fast as Z80 systems from Cromemco, Kontron and others. A harddisk was not available for the first machines. The operating system was called PC-DOS 1.0, it was pretty buggy, it could barley load one single program and not much else.
