    I think the confusion is because people can't decide whether the 68000 CPU was 16-bit or 32-bit.. (It is 32)

    unlike the 8086 or the 8088 - Can we include these on the vintage list, along with my old Atari 65XE, Acorn Electron, and zx spectrum?

    I personally don't have any more of the old equipment around anymore, but a friend of mine does....

    I remember driving down to a computer shop in Novi (near Detroit, MI) to pick up his first Amiga....the 1000. Inside the cover are the signitures of the developers of the machine, including the paw print of their dog. He's still got that machine....along with my Amiga 500 and a few Atari's and C-64's.

    well I can see this amiga argument going on ad nauseum......


    in any case I'm rebuilding my atari 8bit collection.... proving to be quite expensive and it's becoming very hard to find some stuff...

    Proper use of capitalization wouldn't be such a bad thing (Tedster and Fiziks)

    I think it is 32 bit as much as a 8086 is 16 bit.

    If I remember right, the first crapintoshes used the same processors as well...

    well, I know that.. but was it the first (32bit processor or processor that worked the way it did) of it's kind

    I'm being 100% serious... Unproper use of grammar and capitalization make posts look bad, and information in general unreliable. I would appreciate if you make a better effort on polishing your posts.

    Also, double posting goes against our Community guidelines.

    The gods have spoken. We must use proper grammer.....

    A few errors here! ;)

    "[...]have spoken. We must[...]" A comma is going here, no?

    What is grammer?

    And 5 dots? It's not just 3 or nothing?

    I'm laughing out loud. (We should type these too?)

    Let's stick with the original subject.... classic computers and computing.

    I think a vintage forum would be a really good idea actually :D

    3 cheers for a vintage forum. Should we make a poll?
