This link has been making the rounds on social
Media this morning. Mainstream press about retro computing is a good thing (some already complaining  about potentially driving prices up, but that’s always something people complain about!)

Seems though there is always a line in most every article/blog/etc I read (mainstream or otherwise) that shows there’s still a whole lot of educating to be done about what was and what it could do and what was done with these now retro machines.

Just one from this particular article:

“ The devices do allow retrocomputers to make art and music using software unavailable on new computers and to play 8-bit games, but not much else beyond that.”
