I'd love to hear more about interesting prototypes.  I've spent a lot
of time hacking around Commodore IEEE devices and can always stand to
learn more.

I wish - I remember drooling over the B-Series machines in the stores
when "all" I had at home was a 32K PET and cassette drive.  Since I
couldn't afford a 2040/4040, I surely couldn't afford to get a
completely new machine.  By the time such things started becoming
inexpensive, I never saw a B-Series machine to pick up for myself.
