[vcf-midatlantic] Random thought: VCF East clones exhibit

Actually, thinking a little more…

 

Smoke Signal Broadcasting was also an SWTPc clone but…

 

When does cloning stop and an industry start?

 

When did ISA bus PCs stop being clones?

 

Are all S-100 bus systems Altair clones?  Is an Ithica Audio box an Altair clone because is has a front panel?  Is a NorthStar Horizon not a clone?

Which I usually do if you get within earshot of my exhibit. ;-)

Getting a bit "esoteric"... GIMIX was a clone of SWTPc.
