*"They literally ran out of space. They had my NeXT Slab, MEGA ST 2, 2 x
IIGS and 2 x Apple IIs undeployed along with lots of other systems stacked
in the corner.​"*
Thus the dilemma: It's fine to be inclusive, but if there are limited
resources to showcase these systems, the true vintage machines should not
go by the wayside.

That being said, I agree with including early PC era machines, but only up
to the advent of PCI 1.0 (~1992), and even then, mainly to show the
evolution of the bus architecture.  After that, there is little point in
showcasing technology that is commodity and barely changed from
contemporary machines.
