A different population from this list to be sure, broadly speaking, but nevertheless
CP/M, DEC, Cromemco, IMSAI etc. are discussed there as well as WIN3.1, and since
it's a forum format you can pick & choose your interest.
And I agree with the OP that, certainly from a broad historical perspective of computers,
old IBM PCs, PETs etc. are just as important and 'classic' in their respective segments
as Altairs, IMSAIs and even DECs, regardless of one's personal bias.
