Hardware, Embedded Systems "Quick - name the most important personal computer of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Those of you who mentioned the legendary Apple II - that's fine. I respect your decision. Forced to think objectively in 2012, I may even agree. But if you just named Radio Shack's TRS-80, you made me smile. Your choice is entirely defensible. And back in the TRS-80's heyday, I not only would have agreed with it but would have vehemently opposed any other candidate."

Completely true. And the proof is that the most awesome computer in the early '80s was the TRS-80 MC-10. I know it bombed and was one of the most limited computer on the marked. But it WAS THE BEST.

It also happened to be my first computer and I learned to program on it. Coincidence? I don't think so.
