Well, did you mention the Newton Killer guy - 'cause he was also
'somewhat' responsible for cutting of the A2 series - and the A2e
Card was just the last step into forcing schools to use Macs
instead of A2s - an LC with the card could still use the old A2
soft, but it's a Mac. And you don't need the drive for all
stations if you had one to copy the Disk onto a networkdrive.
Thats exactly the idea behind - the only problem was, if schools
where forced to switch (No new A2s), they eventualy did just drop
Apple at all and changed for PCs - in fact, the A2e card was already
a reaction to this to maybe keep some within the Apple family, since
originaly there was just the LC, and no A2e card ...

Anyway, I bought one via eBay, and it'S a nifty pice to play around.
