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.

Funny, I was pretty curious about this article until the author started his proposal. That' s when I gave up, because these where my first thoughts:

Let's see what's available at the moment:

there's the OneChip MSX:

Probaply the author has no clue what a MSX is, so let' s check out Wikipedia:

Never too old to learn (even about retro computing) :-)
