At least I find it fun to read about. Yet I doubt that I would be spending many hours playin games on that machine Smile | :)

A small side remark: I looked around a few Wikipedia pages - some are of a strange kind, such as List of commercial failures in video games
[^], which lists the Vectrex among 32 other gaming hardware failures, and also lists 27 gaming software failures. I mean: How did we survive in the old days, without Wikipedia to provide such absolutely essential information? Smile | :)

Another remark: Referring to 6809 as 'a relative of 6502' ... well ... Sure, they were both marketed as 8-bitters. Just like 8086 and MC68K were 'relatives', as they both were 16-bitters, at least externally. (68K had several 32-bit features, and 6809 had a number of 16-bit features.) But who cares about such details, 40 years later?

(For those who remember the CPU wars of the 1980s, essentially between x86 and 68K: That is one of my prime examples to illustrate that sometimes, the best one does not win. But that is another discussion.)
