I only have 1 VLB motherboard, and one card. It is lowest number of
cards for a given card type that I own :-) Oh wait, I only have one AGP
card, so I guess AGP and VLB are tied in my collection. I have had lots
of EISA, Microchannel, and ISA cards. Only 5 or 6 PCI cards, and most
of those are recent acquisitions.

I would consider VLB to be classic, or at least "legacy". I guess it
depends on the definition. I don't think any VLB cards have been
shipped for quite some time. They were mainly a 486 class bus. Did any
Pentium or 386 class motherboards come with VLB slots?
