There ought to be some sort of “geek cred” factor. Being able so say you ran a DEC Alpha is way cooler than running j.random Intel Xeon, imho (regardless of the technical capability of the chips)

How would a 80186 rate? What about those PIC microcontrollers from the age before Flash, with a window over the chip?

Man I loved Steve Jackson Games as a kid. One of my favorite memories as a little boy was during a visit to my grandparents in Austin I convinced them to take me to visit the SJG offices.

You beat me.
I only played a text game on such thing, when I was a kid, at mom’s workplace. A fanfold-paper fed teletype, you sent a command in and the printer rattled back results.
…and now I feel old. Thank you.
