Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom

Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR

Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive. :blobthinking:

@polychrome I've got a bad feeling about this that these lists *are* mutually exclusive.

The first comes about because the 2nd isn't available. The 2nd being available precludes most of the 1st from being viable.
