I spend all day on amazingly powerful computers both in my hands and around the world and the almost forty year old 8-bit relic now in the basement is far more fun and I haven't even really made it do anything much yet.
@architect power on to usable word processor faster than a cold boot of my i7 laptop with m.2 ssd can get me to a desktop
@djsundog last night I was looking at Z80/CPM emulators that can control the COM (or /dev/tty) ports of the host PC, and had the hair brained idea of even trying to control my mini pager transmitter from assembler and have a console screen similar to what was used in the pager companies call centres in about 1989/90 (it might even have been a multi user CP/M based system or similar as British Telecom were using CP/M around 1987/8 when I did work experience there..)
@vfrmedia I fully intend for this Kaypro to be in daily use as a terminal and dev machine. I will give it as many modern conveniences as I can reasonably but me and that 80x25 green screen are gonna go back to being BFFs
