The question is simple: Do you want a Zilog Z80 based simple computer kit, similar to the OMEN Alpha? Please vote here.

For whom not already  build alpha its may have sense. CP/M compatibility  interesting part. Alpha computer without OS, and for CP/M lots software you can try.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Perhaps you should check out the RC2014 Google Group for a simple Z80 system with lots of RAM and able to run CP/M.

Yes, I know RC2014 and it is pretty good. My goal is not to have a CP/M system, but TO MAKE a Z80 CP/M system. To be honest: CP/M is not very useful nowadays, but the process of making is a great adventure. So I am sorry, my motivation is maybe a little different...
