Is BD-DOS lost to time?

This is the best place to discuss about the various Oric operating systems like Sedoric, Randos, FT-Dos, and others, as well as serious software, utilities, word processors, disassemblers, etc... that runs on oric computers.

Hi.

Here is some more of the BD500 history.
This was written by Jeremy P. Hibbins, who ran the Byte Drive Users Group

The price list I received from ITL Kathmill. Notice that it includes prices for a BD500 for the beep. As far as I know, this was newer released.

I've been doing other things for a while but I have made some progress on BDDOS. I have produced a new version of BD Basic and DOS. This new DOS allows for disk directories and includes instructions such as MKDIR, CHDIR & RMDIR. I am testing this but if there is enough interest then I will make a suitable ".DSK" and (mini) manual available via this site.
