I would have to disagree with you there. I feel the old tape units have a place, not just in the later 8 bit systems, but the older systems too. As "computer people" we can not forget our heritage. Try to find a college class in Assembly Language for any machine. There are many self taught people who have mastered many a "lost art" on an older machine. It's not the speed, quality, or relevance of the perticular piece of hardware that makes it valueable, it's what you can learn from it, and what you can make it do that makes it special. Heck, I really do feel from using most of the different drives that were made for the CBM machines, and my favorites were the 8250, and SFD1001. (designed for the PET) Would I use a 1541 or 1540 as a doorstop because I like them better, I think not (and I feel there are many that agree with me.)
