Hardware, Embedded Systems In this article, I'm going to explore the idea that the 8 bit home computer not only had a great deal to offer the prehistoric early-humans of 1985 but that it may also have a place in the modern world; perhaps, there is something that we can learn from it. Having identified the laudable, worthwhile elements of this class of machine, I'm going to make some suggestions towards a scheme that would embody these characteristics in the form of a machine that would have a place within the modern world.

I think I'm one of the few who would actually use such a machine. It would make a fun change from my Mac right now, especially in terms of development. Writing programs for these tiny things is so much more fun than browsing the Cocoa or Qt documentation to see which overloaded function to use.
