CP/M for MacIntosh

Me suena que este tema ha aparecido por aquí ya, pero no logro encontrar un hilo apropiado, así que abro uno (si ya existe, ruego me perdonéis).

Esta tarde, en una de mis batidas para encontrar material "antiguo" de cierta calidad, me he topado con esto, y ahí lo dejo:

CP/M for MacIntosh

You know, you are beginning to make me feel really old (o.k., really
OLDER {:>)) ...
I dont have the manuals in front of me at the moment, but I.Q. Software
was the name of the company we worked with on porting CP/M-68K to the
Mac
(assuming memory is not completely gone senile). We actually sold a
few copies, and used it ourselves for a while.

There were two versions. The first version actually "took over" the
Mac. It was pretty primitive, but it did work. Trouble was, you lost
all ability to get to any of the actual Apple MAC environment. The
second version was developed after it became obvious that some people
were actually interested in running the Mac OS! It operated more as an
application under the native OS. This gave it a lot less room to run in
(on a 128k Mac to begin with), but made it a lot easier to import/export
stuff.

I am virtually certain he moved from that address not long after your ad
was published. I talked with him a couple of years later, but have lost
track of him long since.

[Final note for history buffs -- DRI was also interested in porting
their GEM system to the MAC (ala Atari ST). We worked on it a little
and had lots of meetings. Then Apple started sending nasty legal
letters to DRI concerning "look and feel" and the project was
abandoned.]

I have a copy of that I.Q.Software CP/M 68K for the Mac around here
somewhere...
I got really disgusted with both I.Q. >and< Digital Research,
because neither would support the sucker. There were files missing from
the distribution version that prevented me from writing any drivers for it
or porting it to another 68000 based computer.

Es un bombazo ! xD

En el post de marras subí el otro día la versión de LISA del GEMDOS, con un emulador como el idle o el LisaEmu lo puedes hacer botar , es una imagen DC42

Pero para Macintosh, ¿ quien lo hubiera pensado ?

¿ Por casualidad ese software no estará preservado ?
