  There was no report, but the subject of conversion to the 8086 was discussed later in the meeting. The problem with conversion, now that CB-86 is supposed to be out, is the 3,000 lines of assembly code that have to be translated. The translation program for converting 8080 assembly code to the upward compatible 8086 is apparently worthless for large programs; therefore, the cost of conversion could be justified only if we had very good prospects for sales.
