Are you a specialist or a generalist?

Just wondering if you regard your classic computing skills as specialised or generalised?

Do you have lots of various old systems with different processors and architectures, or do you specialise in a particular processor, architecture or system?

I regard myself as a generalist, mainly due to the various different systems I have. I gues I just don't have the time to get extremely close and personal to one particular system. That doesn't mean I don't know my various systems, but I'm sure that someone who has devoted their time and energy to one type of system would know more about its finer details and nuances than I would.
