Ah, CP/M. The first computer I ever had to physically apply solder on was a CP/M machine -- the Exidy Sorcerer II... It was fun having a PC before the PC existed, and the 8-track cartridge roms were a hoot. Coding everything in machine code (hex!) was not so much fun, but you'd be surprised how simple it was to mash up a knock-off space invaders.

The soldering part came in because the components had a tendency to loosen up from the motherboard.

It's a pity Gary Kildall didn't have his head screwed on. CP/M services were accessed by loading AH with a value, other parameters in other registers then calling location 0005. Guess what.... this method persisted in MS-DOS right up to version 2.2 even though for MS-Dos it was calling Int 21h. I wonder where they got that from ??

And, if he had any business sense, his GEMS desktop would still be here, instead of that gawd-awful MAC derivative (yes, Apple does steal good ideas!). GEMS was a great product, but he had to run it on an unstable platform.
