Another issue with Z80/8080 instruction set, if I remember correctly, is that they are not orthogonal in regards to the registers. Some opcodes only work with registers B and C, others only with D and E, and so forth.

The ugliness of x86 instruction set has a long root.

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
