I didn't quite mean that :-) I was just interested to note that some
micros that were once well-known aren't well-represented in your list, or
Allison's, or mine. Only one occurrence of the 9900, no F8, only one
Cosmac, ... Perhaps three people is just too small a sample to show all
of the ones that faded from popularity (and maybe nobody else here is
interested :-)) Not a lot of DSPs either, though of course they're more
