Transam Advert - July 1982
From Personal Computer World
"Over forty of the world's leading software houses have one thing in common - Transam Microsystems"
Another advert from Transam Microsystems Limited, showing a generic Transam box (that might be a Tuscan) in the "PET on steroids" style that Transam seemed to like, together with a scattering of 8" and 5.25" floppies. The advert is not for any particular box, but for Transam's software division, which seemed to be churning out a lot of CP/M stuff. CP/M was the operating system that MS-DOS was, er, "based" on; the OS that was irrevocably tied to the fortunes of the IBM PC - launched a year before - and which would soon completely sideline CP/M (and pretty much everything else)
