Some time ago I relayed ROMs
dumped from the Olympia Olytext 20 text processing system. Yesterday I finally got hold of a complete system that included the hitherto elusive system disk. Its ROMs are identical to the ones posted previously.
The main unit is contained in a relatively small but heavy metal case that is shared between the Olytext 20 and 30 models. While the Olytext 30 is an XT compatible with a Z80 daughter card that would need to be emulated to run the proprietary word processor of the Olytext 30, the Olytext 20 is a genuine Z80 machine with 128K RAM and two 3.5" floppy disk drives (using 80 tracks, 16 sectors/track, 256 bytes/sector).
The peripherals are an amber composite monitor, a keyboard with special keys for the word processing application and some sort of typewriter or printer, in this case an Olympia ESW 2000 C daisywheel printer that speaks Diablo.
The Olytext application is a proprietary affair that maintains file compatibility with earlier Olympia applications and can drive some Olympia electronic typewriters as printers. While CP/M was already way past its prime by the time the system was released (1986), this whole "computer" affair was still a mystery to a company that had been among the world's top three office automation systems manufacturers at the end of the 1960s. Instead of opening up to the possibilities of computers, they treated them as ever more complicated extensions to typewriters.
Files are as always on the FTP and here.
