I had to do a search just to figure out what CP/M was. Is that the Commodore 64 OS? I used to love my C64 - even Roche used to come over and play Bruce Lee with me. I think there is a C64 emulator around someplace, too. I even learned to program on the damn thing - the great great grand-daddy of Jackassery was programmed by me on my old Commodore.

I'm showing my age with the CP/M reference. It was an old 8-bit computer operating system by Digital Research... pre-dating MS-DOS. It was available on several different computers. My old Coleco Adam computer even had a version you could load up! (From which you could run Word Perfect, Infocom games and other stuff). I think there was a version for the C-64 or C-128 too.  
Back then we didn't know any better and we LIKED IT that way!
