8 Bit Era
Any old people here?
Any of you own computers from the the 8-bit era of computing... the 1980's?
It was sort of a golden era with quite a variety of machines, and towards the end it got quite mature. The time when the Z80 chip was king. And then IBM came along a killed it all.
My first computer was a TRS-80. Black and white, chunky block graphics. But a dream to program. Every computer in those days would dump you directly on a commandline, ready for you to write MS-BASIC code, with lots of PEEKing and POKEing, which you would then carefully save onto cassette tape at 1200 baud.
I went on to own a Sega computer... I forget the model number... and finally an Apple II.
So what did you own as a kid? Comodore PET, Vic 20, or 64?
A Sinclair ZX-80?
Some Japanese MSX machine?
