That was about the time CP/M went to 3.0. I never felt comfortable
with that - liked the 2.2 version better - but I was still using
other things then too. I remember the first time I tried to expand
memory on a CP/M system by adding a 16K board to the 4K [or it may
have been getting to 32K from 16] and I read the docs, tried,
re-read the docs, tried-again.
Having to configure the system to match the memory and the
aracane instructions [at least it seemed to me that way at the
time] made the Unix documentation look like a good novel by
comparison. Once you can read and at least partially understand
the docs and man pages everything becomes relatively easy.

I only commented because the link you posted referenced the release
notes only. I found that in addition to those the overview in
announcments and the early-adopters fleshed things out much better.
