It's very interesting stuff.  The R10K/195 I^2 is a very usable desktop

Those were our main development machines at Peachtree Software before 1981,
when the PCs really started taking over.  I ended up with one, which I kept
until 1997, although the poxy Hazeltine terminals I had all died.  One of
the terminals went out with a bang and a cloud of stink when I switched it
on for a demonstration, circa 1992....

The Altos machines themselves, though, never gave us a minutes hardware
trouble outside the occasional floppy drive.

With MP/M's tiny fotprint, and the miniscule size of CP/M programs, an
A-8000 with 64K and 2 floppies was actually a usable multi-user machine for
its day.
