The fun was in making it do what it was never equipped to. Two-voice
sound generation with the ability to control timber was made possible
through some clever programming. And while the graphics could not rival
the other machines of the day equipped with specialized graphics chips,
some pretty damn good games were still developed on it.

Apple ][ users were challenged from the get go by choosing the Apple ][ as
their machine of choice, which is why we make better programmers today ;)
