I remember when the IBM XT was too new for a VCF exhibit, back when Sellam
ran shows.  The perspective is of a person who was not really part of the
XT class machine world when they were pervasive.  To me he seems to be
exploring how they work as he teaches his son, but I guess most people
forget at this point how to use a PC and DOS.
