  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
 
  CP/M  /C-P-M/  n.  [Control  Program/Monitor;  later  {retcon}ned 
  to  Control  Program  for  Microcomputers]  An  early  microcomputer  {OS}  written 
  by  hacker  Gary  Kildall  for  8080-  and  Z80-based  machines,  very  popular  in 
  the  late  1970s  but  virtually  wiped  out  by  MS-DOS  after  the  release  of  the 
  IBM  PC  in  1981.  Legend  has  it  that  Kildall's  company  blew  its  chance 
  to  write  the  OS  for  the  IBM  PC  because  Kildall  decided  to  spend  a  day 
  IBM's  reps  wanted  to  meet  with  him  enjoying  the  perfect  flying  weather 
  in  his  private  plane.  Many  of  CP/M's  features  and  conventions  strongly 
  resemble  those  of  early  {DEC}  operating  systems  such  as  {{TOPS-10}}, 
  OS/8,  RSTS,  and  RSX-11.  See  {{MS-DOS}},  {operating  system}.
