I totally diaagree with that comment. My interest in computers is
hardware related (I follow Steve Ciarcia in that 'my favourite language
is solder' :-)). And to me, therefore, a bit-serial processor made from
either simple integrated circuits or discrete transistors (I forget which
the 8/S is) is a lot more interesting than a machine built round a
microprocessor and, even worse, semi-custom video and sound ICs.

Different people have different interests, sure, and I am not saying that
those who like the VIC20 (and similar machines) are in any way 'wrong'.
It's just not my main interest.
