Have you ever read the technical manual for the QX10?

It appears there were 2 keyboards sold for it. One had Valdocs-specific
keys, the other (which seems more common over here, not that the QX10
is a common machine) doesn't and was used for a more standard
CP/M system. 

I see absolutely no reason why the latter could not run spreadsheets,
accounting programs, language compilers/interpreters, etc.
