Lobo Systems Inc. (Goleta, Calif.)

Lobo made a name for itself by selling floppy and hard disk units for Apple and Tandy systems. It also sold its own version of CP/M called Lobo CP/M, and later developed LDOS (Lobo DOS), a TRSDOS-compatible operating system. By late 1983, Lobo had sold about 2,000 Max-80s.
