I didn't have one of those new-fangled ZX81's, but I thought the keyboard on my ZX-80 was adequate.
It's not like you were going to type a book on it. The programming environment was elegantly terse.

Mine still works - as well as it ever did. It will work until there are no more TVs with the right inputs.

With the beta you can only see 3 or 4 whiny replies per page on a big screen.
No way I'm scrolling through thousands of them.

I don't think I could be arsed to read through many good ones either.

Buh Bye

P.S. It automatically ate my line breaks. Funny it wants to save space by removing actual message formatting.

The majority of comments dislike the new site while some do offer solutions to make it better. The question is will Slashdot force the unwanted change on its users that clearly do not want change?"

+ - Once Slashdot beta has been foisted upon me, what site should I use instead? 2

The new beta interface seems very well suited to tablets/phones but, it ignores the fact that the user base is, as one would expect, nerds sitting in front of very large LCD monitors and wasting their employers time. It's entirely possible that the browser ID information gathered by the site has indicated that they get far more hits on mobile devices where the new interface is reasonable but, I feel that no one has analyzed the browser ID (and screen resolution) against comments modded +5. I think you will find that most +5 comments are coming from devices (real fucking computers) that the new interface does not support well. Without an interface that invites the kind of users that post +5 comments, Slashdot is just a ho-hum news aggregation site that allows comments. So, my question is, once the beta is the default, where should Slashdot users go to?"
