Was using a TI-99 4A until 1991.

Had a few better machines (Atari 800XL and a C64) but kept coming back to the TI.

Graphics were a loss (remapping ASCII character bitmaps? orly?) but the handling of data in a program was so simple and beautiful, even using tape. Fond memories.

Now everything gets Linux on it. Architecture? Meh. Works on everything.

More powerful, more usable.

But not nearly as much fun.

God I miss 80's computing.
