I worked for Cromemco just before the
C10 was introduced. I ourchased one
and used it for a few years.
It had one Z80 cpu to run both the
video and the computer part.
It was shipped to run CDOS,
Cromemco''s version of C/PM.
Of course it could also run C/PM.

It was used as a smart standalone
terminal and used with the larger
S-100 bus machines that ran CROMIX
the Unix look a like by Cromemco.

At the time they were banking on a contract to sell the c-10 to the us post office.

It was very difficult to tell what Cromemco were trying to achieve with the C10. They'd made their name as a vendor of beautifully-engineered S-100 "crate" systems with excellent graphics boards available, and then came out with this stunted little terminal-lookalike with no graphical abilities at all - just at the point that CP/M was dying.

The good point was that the build quality was, by the standards of the day, superb - it was much nicer to use than (say) a Superbrain. It really seemed to be in competition with the Xerox 820, although its relatively low-profile looks probably made it a slightly easier sell into executive/professional environments than the horrible boxy 820...

But what it was missing was Cromemco's wonderful colour graphics....
