In 2001 a limited licence for using CP/M was given to Tim Olstead (The Unofficial CP/M Web site) by Bryan Sparks who was (and still is) CEO of Lineo (successor of Caldera).
This licence has been clarified by Brian Sparks, CP/M is now clearly under an open source licence.

You are so used to it, but the cover of your Amstrad CPC disk drive has some informations. Why not getting an upgrade of these informations by getting the one made by Frédéric Bellec (ACME web site) ? It's available in azerty and qwerty, and in english.

It took me time before starting reading this book, but now it's done, the official biograhy of and by Lord Alan Michael Sugar.
I did read already his other biographies :
- Alan Sugar, the Amstrad Story by David Thomas
- Sir Alan Sugar, the biography by Charlie Burden
The first one gave insights about his childhoold but nothing about his football years. Whereas the second one was introducing his foootball years. WYSIWYG give a lot more details about his childhood, the first steps which made him the man we all know and also a lot more on his football years. Honestly, I did appreciate this book and I recommend its reading. The only regret and it's purely personal, the book has a part about the Amstrad CPC computers but nothing about the CPC 664 which was my first computer, not very important though.
The year 2019 is near the end, it gave a lot of good things for the Amstrad computers, not only for the CPC, one of the very last being the Toki beta by AmstradGGP for example.
So, let's wish at least as much good if not more for the hear 2020. And personnally I wish you and people you care for a good and happy new year.
