Maybe I'm wrong - I do not know for a fact, what brand switch MITS used
in their Altair 8800. Thanks, Rich.
But that's why I asked for a photo of the original switch on the
original board - so there's no doubt about what they used. And others
can look at that photo and say "hey, *my* Altair does/doesn't have
those". I tried to find such a photo, I could not find one.
Well, I found *one* but it was a head-on photo! Uninformative about that
detail. Who knew? ;)
