I used to use an ICL Quattro. This had both Concurrent CP/M86 and C-DOS
on it. They were IIRC quite different.

For it's day the Quattro was quite an impressive machine.. 8086 with 1Mb
RAM running 4 terminals each capable of running 4 sessions. I used to
be able to get the secretarial staff word processing with one finger
when doing a DBMS compile on one virtual terminal whilst sorting a file
with another ;-)

The later ones had a 286 in them. IIRC they had something like a 10MB
hard drive in them
