Nope, not gonna take it back.
In my circle of users in Brooklyn, EVERYBODY with a Model I had a doubler if they had disk drives. EVERYBODY.
I'm sure there are people on this list who didn't. Because you guys can be pretty stubborn, ornery and non-standard.
But anyone with a Model I who didn't get a doubler locked themselves out of lots of software, halved the storage capacity of their system, and had lots of trouble reading disks.
I bought my system as a 16k Level I, and upgraded it to a 4 drive 48k Level II.
Many people upgraded piecemeal. And a doubler was one of those "must have" upgrades.
That was my experience. Having worked for Stony Clove Computer Center, Spectrum Projects, Zebra Systems, Colorware and Alpha Products.
