I've pretty much agreed with your replies down the line on this.  I
wanted to add that I see a lot of "baby duck syndrome" where people of
all ages fixate on two things: the system they used to have when they
were younger (that exact age varies a bit) or, less often, the system
they _wanted_ but couldn't get at about the same age.  I first fell
into the 1802 and 6502, two of my favorites to this day.

Yep.  Plenty of cool relics from the 70s... and us too.  ;-)
