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.

Probably feels significantly faster than the other systems too


@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

Obviously there's some amazing things we can do now too, but damn is it depressing to think that an ≤8MB OS that boots into a usable state nearly instantly is no longer available

@djsundog I keep my TRS80 CoCo handy for just the same reason. Pop in the Color Scripsit cartridge and turn it on, and it's ready to go before the TV tube warms up.
