Ah yes, LC ...not only Macs from the times long after Steve Jobs was gone from Apple, and long before he returned - they also can be seen as leading to the dynamics which almost brought Apple to the brink of collapse.

I think such "tribute" could be considered - at least in times passed - blasphemous ;)

(though seriously, they were nice machines for what they could do, judging from few LC 475 in my high-school* at the turn of centuries; too bad why they were there in the first place probably had somewhat shady background: http://www.osnews.com/permalink?489120 the bit starting with "Furthermore")
