Speak for yourself, buckshot! ;^>

I can think of one *very collectible* system that was produced into the
90's: Try a Tandy Color Computer 3. They were produced into 1991/92, if
memory serves. Yes, an 8-bit machine that actually had viability (and
profitability) into the 90's!

BTW, the CoCo series has the distinction of having the longest production
time of any 8-bit system, and I think of any non IBM/Mac system.

Anyway, that's just my $0.000002 (and that's all it's worth!) ;-)
