Checked into the OS Holy Wars in the comp.os.(crossposted).advocacy
newsgroups lately? Makes our old squabbles about mere hardware

And there were never any arguments about TRS-80 vs. Amiga. By the time
the Amiga made any impact, the TRS-80 was being pretty well phased out
in favor of those damned Tandy 1000 atrocities.
