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."

I don't know... with trivial GUI tasks, do those people with post-its (people that I describe closer in http://www.osnews.com/permalink?530795 ) really have any sort of proficiency in using the GUI?

And it seems to me that lots (most?) of BASIC "coding" was fairly similar.
