OSFirstTimer does videos of various operating systems, so I sent them a PM suggesting SymbOS for the CPC. Here's the video:

I mentioned FutureOS in the email I sent recommending SymbOS, so you never know, they may do it in the future (no pun intended)

They really don't have a clue do they? Crapping on about how bad the keyboard was, how the display couldn't fill the screen etc. Never heard of an Amstrad in Australia, but they had a TRS-80 (who ever had one of those in Oz?) maybe it was big in the US! lmao.

That was cool, They mention that there are still businesses that use this machine, is this true? I can imagine nostalgia freaks still using , but business's still having it running?

The guy is half the age of a CPC, you can't expect him to know very much about anything that doesn't have a touch screen.

I've heard of businesses still using old 8-bits like BBC's due to their stability.
