Sure. I still don't quite understand everything about the user modes or
addressing. Its possible that it I understand it and just don't think it
could be that simple. : )

I saw that. If I were to do anything like that I would want it to be an
educational tool. And for people who want to build it for fun, art. The
thing needs to lay flat so it could hang on a wall.
Don't tell me you wouldn't want to hang CP/M on the wall... : )

Sure. And with a 5MHz clock it would multiply at the speed of a 100MHz+
486. : )

In a little Altair 680 sized box!
