I've never seen a CompuPro ANYTHING I liked. However, there's no accounting
for taste.

You mustn't forget, BTW, that I'm not a collector, except in the sense that
I haven't thrown some things away because I remember what they cost me.

The S-100 stuff was pretty easy to deal with back when you could make a
living with that sort of thing. Though I found the INTEL boards for the
multibus-1 somewhat better designed, they were so much more costly, I
couldn't, in good conscience, recommend them if an S-100 board, otherwise
equivalent, cost 10% as much, as was often the case.

Of course, I have a real bunch of Multibus-1 stuff because it was always up
to the mark.
