Althought I am not really a 'PC person', I would agree with this. There's
nothing wrong with talking about IBM-PC related stuff that's no longer
mainstream, it's as interesting as most other micros. But like you, I
don't want to see this list degnerate into a Windows/Pentium support list
(there are plenty of other, better, places to talk about such machines).
Of course, If you want to try to write a pentium-compatible microcode for
a PERQ, then this list may well be a good place to talk about it...
