From a website:
"Essential Software is a recent addition to the extremely limited list of suppliers of 512 products. Started in late 1989, Essential Software is run by Robin Burton and Mike Ginns (better known until now for Archimedes books and software). Essential Software's stated objective is to provide novel and useful 512 software at reasonable prices. The list of currently-available packages is extensive and is still growing......A 'Fast Boot' to permit the 512 to be started up much more quickly than from the normal 640K ADFS format boot disc. Part of the speed gain is because some of the code is loaded from ROM or sideways RAM, while DOS Plus itself is loaded directly from the much faster 800K DOS Plus format 512 disc."
