Notes
MB-02 (a prototype) was originally developed by MDV Robert Letko and Busysoft Slavomir Labsky.
8BC acquired the scheme and an operating system from these gentlemen and started producing MB-02+
The “Plus” version had some nice improvements over the prototype).
MB-02+ was a professional, although hand made, product.
We were selling this approximately between 1995 and 2003. We sold some 70 pieces.
