An Insider’s History of SMSQ/E

Tony Tebby, the author of the Sinclair QL‘s operating system QDOS, added a long semi-autobiographical essay to the Wikipedia page on QDOS’ successor SMSQ/E. However, a Wikipedia moderator deleted it – sad, but fair, since it was not directly relevant to an encyclopaedia entry. Someone has extracted the story and placed it on a Geocities page, unformatted. But as Geocities is closing down, soon that too will disappear – so read it while it’s still up! The original, deleted history remains visible in Wikipedia’s history, here.
